Sierra Club North Star Chapter to Oppose Marriage Amendment

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 11, 2011

Sierra Club North Star Chapter to Oppose Marriage Amendment

The Sierra Club North Star Chapter has adopted a resolution opposing the November 2012 constitutional amendment banning marriage for same-sex couples. It is the first environmental organization in Minnesota to publicly stand against enshrining discrimination in the state’s constitution.

“To achieve our mission of environmental protection and a sustainable future for our planet, we must attain social justice and human rights at home and around the globe,” said Margaret Levin, the state director of the Sierra Club North Star Chapter. “The Sierra Club North Star Chapter has a long history of working together to protect our communities and our planet. We do not tolerate injustice, and we will not stand by and allow our state constitution to be used as a means of dividing communities and harming families.”
