The Wisconsin Legislature is pushing an amendment to the state constitution that would ban civil unions and marriage for gay and lesbian couples. This ban on civil unions and marriage will hurt Wisconsin families by denying the rights and responsibilities of marriage, such as shared health and retirement benefits.

Action Wisconsin has already trained 698 people in 12 communities statewide on how to communicate effectively about the harms of the amendment. Our trained supporters inform their circles of friends and family, and many speak to organizations such as their church, service club, or sports team.

To stop the amendment we need to have thousands of personal conversations with our family, friends, and co-workers.

This training is for anyone and everyone interested in stopping the ban on civil unions and marriage. You do not need to be a public speaker; we want all of our supporters to feel comfortable articulating the arguments against the amendment.

Be outspoken for equality! Register for the Central Wisconsin Training on March 11: http://eqfed.org/aw/events/CentralWI/details.tcl
