While there is strong confidence about our position, the Senate is playing games on scheduling a vote.
The request has come from inside to build the pressure for the VOTE TO HAPPEN.
CALL AND PUSH THE VOTE:
CALL: SENATOR SKELOS' Office (majority leader): (518) 455-3171.
Please be strong, but polite: "I'm calling to urge the Senate to bring Marriage Equality to a vote today. Please stop the delays, and let the vote take place."
Add what you wish, but please do not get threatening, or use abusive language.
If you're in his district, feel free to vigil, or call there: 55 Front Street, Rockville Centre, NY 11570; (516) 766-8383.
ALBANY VIGIL TONIGHT:
If the vote doesn't happen today, there will be a VIGIL starting at 6 p.m. outside the State House, supported by MENY.
Bring candles, signs, passion.
SENATE CHAMBER STANDING WATCH:
Everyone is invited to GO TO ALBANY NOW and stand inside by the Senate Chamber.
Wear ME tea-shirts, bring small signs (not too big). Handlers will be on site.
ACCOMMODATIONS & TRANSPORTATION:
We're on our own. The state house is open all night, so sleeping bags, etc. is an option.
Keep an ear out for last minute updates and news. It could happen this afternoon, Friday at the latest (i.e., no plans to stay the weekend).
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. WE'RE ALMOST THERE. LET'S PUSH IT OVER THE FINISH LINE.
MARRIAGE EQUALITY NOW!
