How you Can Help Get the Word Out


Getting the Word Out!

Help get the word out about the detrimental effects this amendment might have on Arizonaís families. Talk to everyone, your friends, co-workers, family members, grocery store clerks, and church members. Tell them how this will affect you personally.

You may want to talk about how we need to:

  • Vote NO to keep politicians out of marriage. Arizona has a budget deficit and our schools need help. But what does the state legislature spend their time debating? Marriage— even though it’ s already defined in state law as between a man and a woman and even though we voted on this two years ago.

  • Vote NO to tell politicians that we aren’t dumb. Why won’t Phoenix politicians listen to us? Do they think we’re dumb? In 2006 we voted no, now they are back at it, putting divisive issues on the ballot. We must stop spending time debating the definition of marriage.

  • Vote NO to tell a religion to stop using government to force its beliefs on the people. No religion should force its views on the people, using government to control our state. No religion should have the ability to amend our Constitution.

  • Vote NO to tell politicians to get to work on real issues that matter to Arizona families. Voting on the marriage issue isn’t important to people; we must focus on more important issues: health care, immigration, energy policy, the economy.

  • Vote NO to leave marriage alone. Marriage in Arizona is already defined in state law as between a man and a woman. There’s no reason to change the Constitution.

  • Vote NO again. Trust the people. Voters made their views known on the issue of marriage two years ago by defeating the so-called “Protect Marriage Amendment.” Forty nine legislators should not be able to overturn the voters on this issue.

We have added two new resources on our web site to help you do this.

  1. Write to the media: If you want to write a letter to the editor or a guest opinion, we have information on where to send it. We also have a list of web sites for 53 local newspapers around the state.
  2. Give Media Interviews: What do you say when a reporter walks up to you and asks for your opinion? We have several suggestions on how you can put a human face on the issue.
