Senate Will Vote on HB444 Tomorrow! Come Show Your Support!

Just read on the Honolulu Advertiser that the Senate will be voting tomorrow, January 22nd, on HB 444 (Civil Unions bill):

“If the bill is approved by the Senate, it would move back to the state House, where lawmakers passed a civil-unions bill last session that applied only to same-sex couples. State House leaders have said they would see whether the Senate gets a two-thirds majority — 17 of 25 senators — to override a veto before deciding how to proceed.”

We are being urged to contact our Senators again and let them know how important passing HB 444 is! Doesn’t matter if you’ve done this already, you gotta keep at it and make some noise to get anything done in this town. Send them an email, call their office, or even try and visit them in person. Here’s a directory listing so you can see who you need to contact.

Since the Senate will be voting on HB444 tomorrow, if you have some free time during the day, come down to the Senate Chambers and show your support. Session starts at 11:30am, but try and come as early as you can. Come as colorful as you can to support LGBT equality! The opposition will be in white, so there’s a color to avoid! :P

Then later in the afternoon, there will be sign waving near the Capitol from 4-6pm at the corner of South Beretania and Punchbowl.

Thanks to Michael Golojuch for the info.
