Get Engaged Tour, Napa, July 15: "Are We Ready for 2010?!", Napa organizers ask

Local LGBT equality organizers are working to make sure we keep marriage equality on our radars. Next up is a forum on Wednesday, July 15 in Napa at Kennedy Park:
A Forum to explore strategies to return California to an “equality” state

A broad statewide coalition of LGBT marriage equality activists and our straight allies are gathering across California to help make that decision.

The “Get Engaged Tour” is an opportunity for local communities to…
  • Learn the most recent polling data on public opinion related to marriage equality
  • Determine the opportunities and challenges of returning to the polls in 2010 or 2012
  • Understand what is happening legislatively at the Federal level and what can be done locally to support those efforts
  • Measure our commitment to a ”Repeal Prop 8” initiative
  • Provide local input on what Napa Valley would like to see and needs in a campaign
  • Begin to organize, strategize and take action
Attend the Get Engaged Meeting in Napa!

Wednesday, July 15th – 7 to 9pm
Pelusi Building – J. F. Kennedy Park
2296 Streblow Drive, Napa

Current polling data shows that we need everyone to “Get Engaged” today to win marriage equality tomorrow. The Get Engaged Tour is our first step. If we empower our grassroots community with the necessary support to do the work that needs to be done…we can win.

Time is crucial and it is short! To properly conduct an initiative campaign in 2010, the decision to move forward must be made by the end of July! The Get Engage Tour community feedback needs to be submitted prior to a Statewide Leadership Summit tentatively scheduled for Saturday July 25th to take place in the Inland Empire.

Some of the sponsors of the Get Engaged Tour…

Equality California, Napa Valley Equality Coalition, Napa Valley Unity League
