Yard signs are officially being distributed! I’m excited to spot my first one in the Twin Cities!
Currently, the sign isn’t available on the MN United web site, but you can pick up tshirts, bumper stickers and even buttons.
How do I get a yard sign?
Thank you for your note! Yard signs cannot be shipped at this time, however, I’ve got some good news for you: You can pick up your yard sign from any one of the local Minnesotans United offices across the state! I’ve included the nearest Twin Cities locations below. Here’s a link to all locations.
Thanks for your support!
1. Saint Paul
1821 University Avenue West, Suite-S137
Saint Paul, Minnesota 55104
1629 Hennepin Ave Suite #200
Minneapolis, Minnesota 55403
(Between Loring Park and the Basilica)
How do I get a sign, I live in Moorhead. You should ship them! Please! :) Please email me back…
Hi Tasha, unfortunately, because of the metal posts required to seat the sign in the ground, they are unable to be shipped. I did some research, and it doesn’t appear that there is a local office near your location. With that said, there is a lot of “Vote No” merchandise that can be ordered directly from the Minnesotans United web site (bumper stickers, buttons, tshirts, etc.)
The next time you take a road trip (or one of your friends is down in the Cities, Rochester, etc.), encourage them to pick up a yard sign for you. Heck, maybe have them pick up a couple and you can start distributing to your friends and allies in Moorhead. Thanks for your support!
I notice the sign says, “Don’t limit the freedom to marry”. Does this mean any person has the “freedom” to marry any other person? Is there a “free right” for a mother to marry her son or her daughter? Is there a “free right” for two 10-year olds to marry one another? Is there a right for 1 person to marry multiple people?
This sign, and in fact much of the same-sex marriage movement, seems to ignore the Pandora’s Box hiding behind all the nice sounding rhetoric.
Hi Tim, thanks for your message. I’d encourage you to check out the following blog post, as I think it does a nice job addressing some of the “scare tactics” amendment supporters try to get their base rallied up around:
After you read through that posting, let me know if you’d like to chat more. Unfortunately, some folks are relying on old tactics and techniques in an attempt to limit the rights of committed same-sex couples. In talking to friends, colleagues and even complete strangers, I have confidence that Minnesota voters are smart enough to see these tactics for what they actually are.
Minnesota for Equality – I commend you on not only the logic of your response but equally importantly the tone. Well done!
I wanted to buy 3 yard signs recently (1 for me and 2 to give to neighbors) but the Minneapolis location near the Basilica on Hennepin refused to sell me any signs. I am working many hours right now and they told me I had to volunteer to work for them for 3 hours in addition to paying the $10 each. I don’t want to volunteer – I am really overwhelmed right now- but I though I could do my part by buying signs for me and friends and placing them in all of our yards but they were adamant about not selling me the signs. I was somewhat surprised by their policy and when I said “really – but I’m working a ton of hours now” one of the workers called another worker over and he wanted to debate me on the topic. I was in a rush and told him I needed to leave and they said nothing as I left. I have volunteered time in the past and I feel kind of guilty over this but I don’t know what to do. I just want to buy signs. Is there some other place that can help me spread the word about voting no?
This is the first that I’ve heard of this. Let me do some digging, as I know that thousands of people have been able to purchase yard signs without any problems. You are not required to volunteer to purchase any of the items from Minnesotans United for All Families.
Of course, if anyone reading this does have some time to volunteer, PLEASE reach out to Minnesotans United via their website. The teams are in need of additional volunteers and your support can help make a difference in Minnesota! With that said, know that you are not required to volunteer to show your support. :)
Hey there, Conrad,
I chatted with several folks from MN United this weekend and I just wanted to confirm that you are not required to volunteer in order to purchase a sign.
With that said, if we were to vote today, polling shows that this mean-spirited amendment would pass. As a result, many volunteers are asking folks to sign up for a volunteer shift when a yard sign is purchased. That way, we can help ensure the conversations continue across the state. I completely understand the working a lot of hours thing (I feel it, too). It can feel impossible to add another 3 hours into the week sometimes, but we only get one chance to defeat this thing. I’m guessing that’s why the volunteer you talked to tried so hard to get you to sign up to volunteer.
When you go back in to purchase a sign, if you have any issues, simply ask for one of the MN United workers to help out.
Thanks again for lending your voice (and your time) to the conversation.
I’ve ordered different yard signs for different causes in previous years and they were able to be shipped in the mail. Maybe it is due to the metal you are using. Hopefully you’ll be able to deliver these via mail soon.
Thanks for your post. I talked to a couple volunteers this weekend about this and it sounds like it may be more of a logistical issue versus materials issue.
With tens of thousands of signs already picked up, keeping up with the supply/demand has been somewhat challenging already across the state. I wonder if adding the logistics, cost, time, etc. involved with shipping would be even feasible for the small staff that this campaign has?
Of course, I completely understand the importance of getting the Vote No message out to every corner of the state! Make no mistake, this is the only way we are going to defeat this amendment. There are a lot of ways this can be done, from ordering the items on the site that can be shipped to sharing your opinions via social media, town halls and other public events.
Guess what? My sister in law brought us a yard sign to Moorhead for us and someone removed it from out yard. I am outraged that someone would quash our freedom of speech in such am overt manner. Is there any way we can get another one? Or at least something to show our support? We live at a busy intersection, an have obviously made an impression.
I’m sorry to hear that your sign was stolen. Sadly, I’ve been hearing about this more and more across the state. I just posted information on how to report a stolen sign (it’s very important to do this so that it can be tracked across the state) as well as ideas on how to discourage future theft:
One of the things I did when this happened to me in Wisconsin was I printed out my own “Vote No” signs and affixed them to every window in my house that faced the road way. Additionally, I taped similar signs on both backseat windows in my car (being careful not to obstruct my view). There are several items from Minnesotans United that can be purchased via their site to show support as well (tshirts, bumper stickers, buttons, etc.)
Sorry to hear that this happened to you. But thank you for not letting hatred and ignorance stand in your way of letting folks know why a NO vote is so important for Minnesota.
Hi and thanks for a great resource!
I wanted to share my experience so that hopefully it will save someone else the hassle. I live in Central MN and wanted a yard sign. The ‘no shipping’ thing on yard signs is a huge headache if you don’t live near the TC, but I decided it was worth it to me. I drove over an hour into the Coon Rapids office this morning (Tuesday Sept. 4th) which is the closest to me.
I got there, and the place looks abandoned. There is a grubby hand lettered sign on the door that says, “We’ll be back Monday.” Which Monday? Labor Day? The 10th? November? Who knows. There’s also a sign that is asking for donations of lasagna. Now, I’m a huge MN United supporter. I have consistently donated my time and money to them. But this was so off-putting, I really almost reconsidered at that point. It’s incredibly unprofessional. Also, in the five minutes or less I was there, I saw three other cars pull into the lot, look disappointedly at the dark closed door, and drive off.
Since I had come so far anyway, I opted to drive all the way downtown and see if the Minneapolis office was open. (It was, and I got my signs.) Good thing I remembered the location!
My point is, I can’t possibly be the only person this has happened to. I love MN United and will support the work they are doing all the way! I am only speaking up in this case because I think they need to make a small change in order to be more effective. If you’re going to make supporters drive across the state to pick up campaign materials, at least have your locations staffed at regular business hours. If that’s not possible due to a lack of volunteers or whatever, then for sure make that VERY clear on the website.
I know you are not officially MNUFAF, but maybe you can pass along the message :) Thanks!
Sorry to hear about your experience. And thank you for sharing your story with others. Per your recommendation, I would _highly recommend_ that folks make a quick call to the office before you go in to pick up your sign – especially if you’re going to be traveling any distance for it. This simple step can help eliminate so many headaches. The phone number for each location, along with the address, is located on the MN United web page: http://mnunited.org/about/offices/
The hours for each location can vary considerably depending on what specific activities are going on in the area (phone banking, canvassing, event volunteering, etc.). The web site encourages folks to “call our offices anytime” to ensure folks have a resource to connect with.
I’d encourage you to share your feedback directly with MN United. You can use the general phone number to share your concerns.
I am sorry to hear that it wasn’t a great experience. At the same time, I would also encourage everyone to remember that MN United is mostly staffed with volunteers. Just like you and me, these dedicated folks have full-time day jobs, families or other commitments. This certainly isn’t an excuse for a lackluster experience, rather, just a gentle reminder. I’m so thankful for the folks that are working so very hard to ensure we defeat this mean-spirited amendment. Without them, there is no doubt in my mind that we would lose this fight. With them, we stand a fighting chance.
Snoflinga, I do hope that you’ll continue share your voice and support the volunteers that make up MN United. Together, I truly believe that we can be the FIRST state to defeat this mean-spirited amendment – but only if we stand united.
I was glad I called and checked on availability of the yard signs at the 1629 Hennepin Avenue office, they will have more signs in on Tuesday September 11. A very friendly Lady answered my call. Thanks for what you are doing. :)
Glad to hear that the person you chatted with was able to help you. In talking with friends, it’s been hard to keep these things in stock – I guess that’s a good problem to have, right? :)
As for me, I’m glad to be doing my little part! Thanks to you as well for standing up for equality and sharing with others. That is the only way we’re going to defeat this thing!
Snoflinga here again and you are wonderful for responding! I agree with you wholeheartedly: We WILL defeat this unfair amendment together.
I only post because I want to make sure others know to call and check hours first! I don’t want to see supporters who are even slightly on the fence to find a closed office or an office out of signs and just give up. It made me really sad to see those oher cars driving off today because I didn’t know where they were going or if they would come back.
So peeps, that’s the message. We love your support! Come get your signs! Spread the word! Talk to your friends, family and neighbors! Just call the office before you come to pick up any yard signs so you avoid frustration :)
Do I need to purchace a yard sign? I would like one or a button or t-shirt! If there is a cost, is there a way to get one for free?
I would recommend calling one of the local offices. I’ve heard of a couple locations offering a yard sign for free if you sign up for a certain number of volunteer shifts. That may have only been for a limited time, but it’s at least worth checking. Here’s a link to all locations:
Thanks for showing your support!
Where can I get a vote “YES” yard sign ?
Thanks for your question.
While I respect that folks may have differing opinions on various matters, this subject is too personal for me not to respond. When we talk about the marriage amendment, we’re talking about something that directly impacts the lives of real Minnesotans. Not only that, it impacts their families and children, too.
Are you married? If so, why did you get married? Was it to celebrate the love you share with your wife and to make a commitment to love and cherish one another? That’s no different than what committed same-sex couples are looking to do. They, too, want to celebrate their love and make that very same commitment.
When you vote yes on this amendment, you’re saying that those relationships don’t matter. That they are “less than” opposite-sex couples – for no other reason than who a person falls in love with. That’s just sad.
I’d like to think that if you were to work with me, go to the same church as me or even just live down the street from me – that you’d find me to be a pretty upstanding guy. Someone that is equally deserving of love and recognition of that commitment as the next person.
My hope is that some day, you will meet someone just like me and these words will resonate with you. Until then, may we have mutual respect for one another even though our opinions may differ.
Oh, and before you go, I’d encourage take a minute to watch this video. I think you’ll see what I mean when I say that love looks the same:
I have no doubt you are a very upstanding guy. You are free to love your partner and celebrate your love regardless of your “marital status”. The reason my wife and I chose to get married was several fold with a core reason to have children. Traditional marriage is the building block for society for one reason, children. All studies show overwhelmingly that the best situation by far is for kids to be raised by a mother and father–no other combo.
Additionally, approving marriage other than between a man and a woman will start a flurry of litigations with companies, churches and religious organizations being forced to provide everything the same for gay couples even though it is against their morals and principles. Not to mention what the schools will be told to teach the young kids in school about gay marriage. That is totally infringing on everyone else’s rights.
I wish you all the best and happiness with the lifestyle you chose.
I appreciate the continued conversation and the insight you share in your reply. I do agree, committed same-sex couples absolutely love and celebrate their relationship, regardless of marital status. However, they are denied many basic rights that opposite sex couples take for granted (can you imagine if one of your children were injured and the doctor told you that you had no right to visit him or her in the hospital because you weren’t considered their parent in the eyes of the law/constitution? It’s a terrible thought, and one that I hope no Minnesotan ever has to face, but it’s a reality for same-sex couples that have children.) That’s why this is such an important topic to me.
As for raising children, I do have to disagree with you on your statement that “all studies show overwhelmingly that the best situation by far is for kids to be raised by a mother and father-no other combo.” In reality, according to the American Psychological Association:
“…there is no evidence to suggest that lesbian women or gay men are unfit to be parents or that psychosocial development among children of lesbian women or gay men is compromised relative to that among offspring of heterosexual parents. Not a single study has found children of lesbian or gay parents to be disadvantaged in any significant respect relative to children of heterosexual parents.”
I’m so proud to be an “adopted uncle” to two wonderful kids raised by a loving and committed same-sex couple. They are some of the happiest (and sometimes spoiled!) kids I know. Here’s a really great video that I’d recommend you check out. Zach Wahls was also raised by a committed same-sex couple, and I think you’ll agree, he makes some really great points:
As for the flurry of litigations or changes to curriculum you reference, unfortunately, these are all scare tactics the other side uses. Here’s a great article that debunks several claims made by amendment supporters (there are several more postings on my blog just like this one that debunk other claims):
I know that amendment supporters have a litany of articles or examples that they point to, however, when you dig deeper, you’ll find that in each of these cases, there’s more to the story. One of my biggest goals with this web site has been to simply educate folks that may not realize this. I try to do this with love and understanding, and I hope that folks see that in everything I post.
Finally, in response to your last statement about the lifestyle I chose, I want to encourage you to check out this post. It’s a very personal post and does a better responding to the statement than I could do in this small comment box:
Again, I so appreciate the continued conversation. While I don’t expect that a couple of emails will change your mind on something so core to your belief system, I do hope that this conversation provides some additional data points to think about and consider. -Mark
Kevin – you can get a vote yes sign at the link below. God bless you!!
Thanks for following this site. I’d encourage you to scroll up and read the comment I just posted in response to Kevin. After reflecting on this, feel free to use the Contact link at the top of this page if you’d like to chat more.
Does anyone know in the Mankato area were you can get Vote No yard signs?
Unfortunately, Minnesotans United doesn’t have an office location there. However, I’ve got several ideas for you!
First, if any of your friends, family or co-workers will be driving through one of the locations with an office, ask them to pick one up for you (and while they’re at it, pick one up for themselves, too). Information for each of the offices – including contact information – is included at the link below. I’d encourage a quick call to ensure signs are in stock and that the office will be open at time that is convenient to you.
Second, if you’re personally going to be traveling to (or through) any of the cities where Minnesotans United has an office, stop by, say hello to the volunteers and pick up a sign. If you have a couple hours to spare, I’m sure they could use your help volunteering, too! :)
Third, if the above options don’t work, I’d encourage you to check out some of the Vote No gear that Minnesotans United has available on their website. Tshirts, bumper stickers, wristbands… All great ways to get the Vote No message out there!
Fourth, you can also print your own Vote No signs. I did this when I lived in Wisconsin and I worked to defeat the amendment there (sadly, it passed). I hung signs in my house, my car (keeping safety in mind) and at work. These signs helped encourage conversations – which is what the goal is all along.
Lots of options to show your support. Thank you for reaching out and for lending your voice to the conversation. I look forward to celebrating with you, and other like-minded Minnesotans, when we defeat this thing in NOvember!
i would like one of these signs as all of my neighbors have vote yes signs. where do I get one?
Thank you for your post! Yard signs can be picked up from any one of the local Minnesotans United offices across the state! Here’s a link to all locations. You may want to call before you go to pick one up, just to confirm that they’ve got signs in stock (contact information included in the link below):
Thanks for your support, Joe!
Would love a yard sign. Anyplace around Minnehaha Falls where I can get one?
There are two Twin Cities locations where you can pick up a sign. Depending on your mode of transport, the downtown one would be best if you take the Light Rail and don’t mind walking a couple blocks. Otherwise, the St. Paul location is about a 10-minute drive.
Look forward to seeing another sign in South Minneapolis!
I will be voting no this election as I believe each person should have the right to be with who they please. Many of the people who are against (will vote Yes) this don’t really understand what voting No means. Voting No means you are not for the constitution of Minnesota to only recognize marriage between a man and a women. It is not saying it will allow for marriage between same sex couples, though a step in the right direction. This is a big misconception of what this amendment is trying to do. We just need to getout and educate others more on the topic.
Thank you for your post. You’re absolutely right – I can’t tell you how many Minnesotans I’ve talked to that have said, “Wait, this isn’t about making same-sex marriage legal?”
Nope, it’s not. Marriage is already defined in the state of Minnesota as one man and one woman. This amendment simply rehashes an old debate. By voting NO, we allow the conversation to continue. If this amendment passes, our constitution is forever changed.
I appreciate your support. Hopefully, we’ll both be able to educate voters on the importance of voting NO right up until election day!
I wish that I could afford the $10.00 for a sign. I have not even seen even one “NO” sign in Cottage Grove. There are many who are disabled and broke………….I am 100% not gay but you have 100% of my support and my “NO” vote.
Thank you for your post. I completely can understand the situation you’re in. There are still several creative ways you can help share your NO vote with others. I’ve seen some homemade signs that have really made an impact (I posted a picture previously of someone that used chalk on their driveway to write out a giant Vote No message).
I’ve also heard that some of the locations will give you a sign if you sign up for a certain number of volunteer shifts. I’d encourage you to reach out to the office to see if this is accurate, but that would be another way to show your support.
Of course, having the conversation with friends and family is probably the biggest difference you can make – and that doesn’t cost anything at all!
Thanks again for your message and your support of equality. I look forward to voting NO with you this NOvember!
Kevin, I think what you are missing is that TRADITIONAL marriage is not the core for good values in our country. That implies that just by participating in the union of marriage you are upholding some kind of sanctity. We can all think of ten perfect examples of how “the sanctity of marriage” has been cheapened by a TRADITIONAL couple. I would love for anyone getting married to feel the moral compulsion to uphold the importance of love, honor, and commitment. I know a lot of gay couples who do a far better job at this than many straight couples.
Second, while schools are not specifically teaching students about “same sex marriage,” they are teaching COMPASSION AND TOLERANCE. That means that your children (if you have them), whether you like it or not, are learning to be kind and loving to everyone at school regardless of the color of their skin, what they wear, or what their family unit looks like. It would be incredibly sad for them to hear a different – less compassionate – message from you at home. As parents, aren’t we all trying to raise the most caring little people we possibly can?
The good news for you Kevin, is that even when same-sex couples are allowed to marry and given the same rights as “traditional couples,” your marriage will still be in tact, you will still have your rights, your beliefs, and your values. What you have will not be taken from you. “Pandora’s Box” is paranoia…that’s all. There is nothing to be afraid of! You will still have your marriage and your rights!
I happily participate in my “traditional marriage,” and feel pretty good about our contribution to the happily married crowd. I can only hope and pray that everyone is given the same chance. Kevin, I am not going to change your mind, but I truly hope at some point you meet someone who you care about as a friend who just happens to be gay. I hope you get to hear the real story of how painful it can be to grow up in a cruel world with other kids who have not been taught tolerance for differences. You will see the pain in that friend’s face and then you will know that no one would “choose.”
I hope you find peace where you currently hold so much anger. I hope you can someday look around you and realize that we are all human beings with feelings, emotions, hurts, and joys. Your gay neighbors are not all that different from you.
Not impressed with your commercials because they don’t go far enough to explain why you feel that men should be able to marry men and women should be able to marry women. It makes no sense at all if you uncover the veil. A man can not phyically marry a man and a woman can not physically marry a woman. The reality of marriage is imprinted in the human body. Just open your eyes to the TRUTH!
Up to this point, two commercials have been released encouraging Minnesotans to vote NO on the anti-marriage amendment this NOvember. I’ve included links to both of the commercials below for easy reference:
As you can see, both commercials highlight the reason why these opposite-sex couples got married: LOVE. Young and old, this is why people decide to get married, to celebrate and share the love they have for one another with family and friends.
This is the exact thing that committed same-sex couples want to celebrate as well.
Maggie, I’m curious…what is “physical marriage?” Are you referring to sex and marriage as the same thing? Does that also means that someday when my body is too frail or, god forbid my body is harmed an accident and I am physically unable to be “physically married,” then I should no longer be married? Sex has an incredibly broad definition and I don’t really think we need to get into the details. I would venture to guess that most married couples would say that love, honesty, respect, and emotional support hold greater value in a marriage than “physical marriage.” I’m not sure your argument holds water for traditional marriage OR gay marriage.
Thanks for sharing. I really appreciate the line you wrote:
“…married couples would say that love, honesty, respect, and emotional support hold greater value in a marriage than ‘physical marriage.’”
If you take a look at the commercials that I just shared from the Vote NO side, they both absolutely support what you have to say in your reply.
Hi want a yard sign how do I get one..
Thanks for your support!
Let me start off saying I have noone close to me who is gay. I worked briefly with a gay man, but that is the extent of contact I’ve personally had. But, I’m extremely passionate about the subject and wholeheartedly agree that marrige should not be limited to opposite-sex couples. I am not much politically involved, and I will be voting for the first time with a big, fat NO. It is a violation of all rights to limit such a huge tradition to only some of our population. And not to mention, I have not heard on logical, valid arguement as to why to vote yes (see ASA comment above to raising children in response to Kevin) that is free from religious affiliation. There may be few setbacks, but all are small and arbitrary to granting these rights to marry to everyone and demolishing 515 laws that cover marrige, denying those to the GLBT
My biggest arguement to those who vote yes, is why? Why do you care?
And I really wany a sign.
Hi Mandy. I’m glad to hear that you’ll be out to vote for your first time and that you’ll be voting a “big, fat NO.” :)
You can pick up a yard sign from any one of the local Minnesotans United offices across the state! Here’s a link to all locations.
You may want to call before you go to pick one up, just to confirm that they’ve got signs in stock (contact information included at the link above).
Is there a printable copy of the yard sign available?
Not that I’m aware of. I’d recommend calling your local Minnesotans United office to see if the volunteers have one of these available. If so, please let me know via the Contact link as I’d be happy to spread the message. Thanks for reaching out and supporting equality!
I live in southeast Minnesota. Where’s the closest location to get some signs.
I emailed you yesterday, but also posting here in case others have the same question:
882 7th Street NW
Rochester, Minnesota 55901
208 S Minnesota Avenue
St. Peter, MN 56082
Here’s a link to all locations:
You refuse to allow my message to post here. I though you were for freedom of speech? I see. Stop the people opposing your agenda.
As evidenced with the comment you just posted, I’m not refusing your messages at all. On September 24, I emailed you – as a courtesy – that I removed your post because you pasted a direct copy of a Star Tribune article on the wall and didn’t include any source information. You even acknowledged my email response to you. If you would like to include a link to a specific article, feel free.
Again – as a courtesy – I’d recommend you avoid posting claims like the above as they just make you look foolish. I absolutely welcome freedom of speech and am appreciative of the discussion that I’ve had with dozens of Minnesotans.
Thanks again for visiting the site.
I had an idea to use the fans give out at the fair. I snapped off the wooden stick part below the sign, and stuck them in my back car windows. I did not check whether it was ok, but figured if you can have a “Baby on Board” or the infant shades…… My work commute is from Rosville to Plymouth, so they get allot of visibility
Thanks for visiting the site – and thanks for sharing your creative approach to helping get the Vote NO message out! I have my fan hanging in my cube at work.
What have other folks done with their Vote NO fans from the Minnesota State Fair?
couldn’t you send out signs without the post? we could find a way to get them in the ground. i would really like one as well as 10 other people in my town, but noone wants to drive 4 hours to get them. Thanks ~jessica
Thanks for your comment – and good question.
After talking with volunteers earlier this year, I believe it’s more of a logistical challenge. Minnesotans United has had a challenge keeping up with demand – tens of thousands of signs have already been distributed! With a limited staff of volunteers, it would be difficult to send these signs to every corner of the state. I wonder if the logistics, cost, time, etc. involved with shipping would be even feasible for the small staff and massive demand that there’s been?
Of course, I completely understand the importance of getting the Vote No message out to every corner of the state! Make no mistake, this is the only way we are going to defeat this amendment. There are a lot of ways this can be done, from ordering the items on the site that can be shipped to sharing your opinions via social media, town halls and other public events. I’ve even seen friends on Facebook make personal offers to deliver signs!
Thanks for standing up for equality and helping get the word out, however you can!
Would love to have a “No” sign on my property – there are none in the immediate 3 mile area that I have seen. Gerry and Terry Berens 9919 Columbus Ave So Bloomington, MN 55420
I just heard last week that the supply of signs was running low. You can pick up a sign from any of the local offices, but I would call first to ensure they are in stock (contact info included at the link below).
Thanks for standing up for equality and showing your support!
I would really love a couple of signs for my yard but can not drive to get them – nor do I have the money to purchase them. The whole situation is kinda sad inasmuch as it is apparent that there are many people who want to show support but with your limited resouces and need for funds the much needed support is not happening. Viscious circle. Unfortunately, I can get any sign form any candidate or many other causes put in my yard without them even asking. I think you need to find a better way because the way it is looking right now the “No” side of the fence is gonna loose big time and it isn’t right.
Thanks for your post. I can understand your frustration; I also appreciate your understanding that it’s more than just putting a stamp on a sign and mailing it out. Costs, time and resources are all required to make anything happen in this campaign. From coordinating a tremendously successful volunteer effort at the Minnesota State Fair to calling tens of thousands of voters in Minnesota, there is a lot of work being done each and every day.
While I’m happy to know that across Minnesota, tens of thousands of Minnesotans have given to the campaign and many of them have been able to pick up yard signs, that, in itself, will not defeat this amendment. It will absolutely help in raising awareness, financing television commercials and more, but it’s only in telling our stories that we can truly hope to defeat this amendment.
So, while you may not have the dollars or the ability to pick up a sign, you still have a lot of power in helping defeat this amendment. I’d encourage you to check out the following resources:
The kNOw Tool
Facebook Cover Graphics
Again, I understand the symbolism and awareness a sign can raise, however, rest assured, putting a sign up isn’t what’s going to defeat this mean-spirited amendment. Involved and committed Minnesotans are.
Thanks again for writing. Don’t lose hope, we’ve made so much progress in the past year:
With your help, we can continue to make progress right up until election day.
Hi, i was just wondering how much a sign is??????
Signs are $10 each. You can pick one up from any of the Minnesotans United for All Families offices:
Please call prior to going in to pick one up to confirm inventory. Thanks for standing up for equality and voting NO in just over 2 weeks!
