A couple weeks back, I posted about The kNOw Tool. It’s a Facebook app from Minnesotans United for All Families that allows you to match your friends to the state’s voter file. From here, you’re able to indicate whether or not the individual supports marriage equality. If you don’t know, you can specify that too. Based on what you select, the app creates a list of individuals for you to have a conversation with. Think of it as your own phone bank – right in your own home!
Today, HRC announced a similar app called Call4Equality. After watching the quick tutorial video, it appears that the main difference is that this app allows you to target your friends by state. Specifically, you select one of the four states that will be voting on marriage equality in November, and the tool identifies your friends within those states. The process repeats much like the above.
Another tool that leverages technology to make having the conversation even easier. We know that personal conversations make all of the difference when it comes to defeating the marriage amendment – thankfully, groups like Minnesotans United and The HRC are making it easier than ever to reach out to voters across the state!
