this fall i ask you to vote to approve referendum 71 to preserve the washington state domestic partnership law. puhlease. now i know all you out in ultranowland are likely pro this issue already, but still please learn all about it at approverefendum71.org now and spread the word to all the washington state residents in your circle. plus, wherever you are, washington or not, you can donate to washington families standing together. and if you're in washington, you can find out about volunteer opps (such as the phone banking which i'm doing) by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
the governor signed this into law and it shoudn't even be up for popular vote but a squirrely signature gathering campaign got sorta enough signatures to put it up to popular vote. if it's not approved, the law goes bye bye and so do important benefits for domestic partners of all genders and orientations. one look at the homepage of approvereferendum71.org and you'll see how many organizations that you already believe in are supporters. please add your voice, not just by voting, but by taking action before the vote. spread the word. silence is not an option. action is the answer. approve referendum 71. vote.
