MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s not your typical house party, in fact it’s an entire series of them tomorrow and it’s one groups “clarion call” against the Minnesota Marriage Amendment.
Organizers of “One Day United” hope to see thousands throughout the state show up to pledge defeat of the ballot measure that would amend the state constitution defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
The group believes that the initiative would “limit the freedom to marry,” and has chosen Sunday because it marks the one-year anniversary since members of the Minnesota legislature voted to put the marriage initiative on the ballot.
Gov. Mark Dayton agrees, and will be attending the “house party” in Minneapolis, taking place at 2 p.m. on Sunday at the home of Ken Rafowitz and Dan Porter on Basswood Road.
“One Day United” is hoping to pull off 200-plus informational parties tomorrow, believing they would demonstrate that “Minnesotans are united for all families.”
In addition to the Twin Cities, house parties are scheduled for Duluth, Stillwater, Rochester, New Ulm, Hibbing, Owatonna and more.
