Marriage Equality USA plans to deploy gay rights advocates on the mainland for telephone banks targeting Hawaii on Thursday.
The New York based group is trying to mobilize supporters of marriage equality in Hawaii before the special session on a gay marriage bill this month.
Marriage Equality USA’s National Equality Action Team (NEAT) will be mobilizing out-of-state marriage equality volunteers from the Western states as well as night owls from other states to staff phone banks to call likely supporters in Hawaii during a national “night of action” on Thursday, October 24th starting at 7:30 p.m. PT/10:30 p.m. ET. Volunteers can sign up to participate in the October 24th night of action or other NEAT actions at the NEAT website.
