The ACLU of Maine joins our colleagues across the country in thanking President Barack Obama for speaking out in favor of marriage equality today.  Like so many Americans, the President described an "evolution" in his thinking in today's interview.  This was a thoughtful and courageous response to yesterday's disappointing defeat in North Carolina.  What's your response?  If you have a moment, please take the time to thank President Obama here.  If you have more than a moment, email the ACLU of Maine Marriage Program Coordinator, Jill Barkley, to volunteer on the campaign.  Jill can be reached at jbarkley at  On May 19, the ACLU team will be participating in a statewide Day of Action, knocking on doors and telephoning voters in an effort to promote marriage fairness.  Email Jill to volunteer now. 
Today, the President made history.  Let's follow his lead by becoming the first state in the nation to affirm the freedom to marry for gay and lesbian couples at the polls.  We can make history in November by volunteering now.
