Six more Thursday nights till the November 6th election – which means six more chances for you to be part of a unique joint-effort phone bank in support of marriage-equality Referendum 74. We photographed the volunteers tonight in the room where they’ve been working at the building shared by Alki UCC and Kol HaNeshamah. They would love to have more volunteers – training and food are provided; you’re asked to bring a laptop and cell phone. It’s a standing listing for 5:30-8:30 pm Thursdays on the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar – see it here.
(SIDE NOTE: If you are just starting to pay attention to this fall’s issues – Referendum 74 started with the Legislature and Governor Gregoire making same-sex marriage legal; opponents gathered signatures to put the new law to voters as a referendum. If the majority of voters vote to approve R-74, the law is affirmed; if more voters reject it, it is overturned. Read the full text of the law here.)
