NOM's Prevent Marriage Tour

BrianBrownNOM Okay, that's not what they call it, though that's what it is. Here, thanks to a friend who's on their list, is the latest from Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage:

Summer for Marriage Tour Schedule

One week from today, NOM's Summer for Marriage Tour 2010 will begin in Augusta, Maine, visiting 19 states and 23 cities over five weeks. Over these five weeks, we will meet thousands of Americans from across the eastern U.S. who are committed to protecting marriage in their own communities. And better yet, each person attending a Marriage Tour rally will be connected with others in his or her own hometown who can join together in making a difference.

I hope you'll plan to join us. Click here to view the full tour schedule.

Next Week's Highlights!

Wednesday, 7/14 - Augusta, Maine. Our first stop is in Augusta, Maine next Wednesday (7/14) at noon, as we rally in Capitol Park across from the State House. I will be speaking, along with Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Maine Jeremiah Project Director Bob Emrich, and other local leaders.

Thursday, 7/15 - Manchester, New Hampshire. Next Thursday, July 15th, we’ ll be in Manchester, New Hampshire with Cornerstone Policy Research Executive Director Kevin Smith, gathering at noon at City Hall Plaza, 900 Elm Street, in Manchester.
