Please take action, and forward this message on to everyone in your
address book.

The New York State Senate ends this legislative session at the end of
this week.
Governor Cuomo is introducing marriage equality legislation to the New
York State Senate, but we are still two or three votes short of
passing this legislation.
You can help whip the vote count. You can help get this bill passed.
We urgently need two or three more yes votes. You can help get those
votes!

Will you please Call, Fax, Webform, Email, and Write NY Senators Today
and Again Every Day All This Week!

From The Empire State Pride Agenda:

There is another reason to be hopeful that marriage will become law
this year – we now have bipartisan support in the State Senate, with
four previous “no” votes coming out for the measure. Governor Andrew
Cuomo will shortly introduce legislation in the Senate that would
allow loving, committed couples to marry in the Empire State. We thank
the Governor for playing such a key role in this fight, but know our
work isn’t over. We need to maintain the momentum and keep the volume
high so that this bill passes both the Senate and the Assembly. New
York’s LGBT families cannot afford to wait any longer.

Call your senator now through the New York State Senate switchboard at
518-455-2800. You can find out who your senator is at
www.prideagenda.org/takeaction.

“I’m calling to express my support for the bill that would allow all
loving, same-sex couples to marry. Marriage matters to me because…”

Today four more senators came out for marriage. Democratic Senators
Joseph Addabbo, Shirley Huntley and Carl Kruger and Republican Senator
James Alesi have joined the Governor and the record majority of New
Yorkers who believe that now is time for all New Yorkers to be able to
marry the person they love. Today, loving, committed same-sex couples
— and their families and friends — from across this great state have
moved one step closer towards marriage equality. But we’re not there
yet.

We remain committed to building momentum so that marriage equality
becomes a reality before the end of this legislative session. After
you’ve called your senator, can you call your friends and family and
get them to call their senators, too?

You can bet our opposition is throwing everything they can into the
fight. We can’t afford to let up for even a moment. Every single
supporter of LGBT equality and justice needs to have a part in this.
Our victory could depend on it. Please call now.

With Urgency,

Ross D. Levi
