Hello Sagadahoc County Dems,

As the new Speakers Bureau Manager for GLAD and a member of the Maine Freedom to Marriage Coalition, I am creating The Maine Speakers Bureau for Equality.  My task is to set up community Speakers Bureaus and speaking teams throughout the State.   I want to start one in Sagadahoc County.  We are looking for GLBT families, couples, and young people, as well as children of GLBT parents and other straight allies to join us in creating these teams.  We know that the best way to change people’s opinion about marriage equality is for them to hear personal stories from their neighbors.  We will do this by speaking out in venues throughout our communities and having 1-1 conversations with our neighbors.  My job is to create a program that trains and supports all volunteers.  We already have a team established in York County and our first Speaking Engagement is set.  We are also delivering Speakers Trainings in many parts of the State.

Our belief is that by telling personal stories we change hearts, and then minds.  Participating in this process can be life changing.

If you are interested in supporting this effort, simply click the link below to sign up, or call me to request more information.

Note:  You do not need to become a speaker to support this effort.  There are many opportunities to help.  These include:  finding speaking venues, supporting speaking teams in non-speaking roles, leading teams, data entry, and more.

I look forward to meeting with and greeting each and every one of you.
