Scott County residents are invited to a kick-off event tonight (July 12) at Turtle's 1890 Social Centre for Scott County Votes No, sponsored by Minnesotans United for all Families, mnunited.org. The group is working to defeat an amendment seeking to limit the freedom to marry for committed couples in Minnesota.
In May 2011, the Minnesota State Legislature voted to put a constitutional amendment on the 2012 ballots in Minnesota that will read: “Shall the Minnesota Constitution be amended to provide that only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as marriage in Minnesota?”
Tonight's event in Shakopee is the first for residents to come together with speakers, snacks, information and inspiration, according to Bryan Gerber with Minnesotans United for All Families. Non-Scott County residents are also welcome to attend.
