Marriage Minute series is an ongoing conversation with Minnesotans about the Minnesota Marriage Protection Amendment, why it’s necessary and what it will accomplish
Minneapolis, MN – Today, the Minnesota for Marriage coalition- a broad-based group of community and faith leaders and organizations supporting this year’s vote to preserve in Minnesota’s constitution the definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman- launched the first in a series of weekly educational videos to explain the Marriage Protection Amendment and address issues surrounding its passage. The series is called the “Minnesota Marriage Minute” and is hosted by former Twin Cities news anchor Kalley Yanta.
“The Minnesota Marriage Minute videos are an exciting opportunity to promote a respectful dialogue about the future of marriage in Minnesota,” said John Helmberger, Chairman of Minnesota for Marriage.
The Minnesota Marriage Minute is designed as an ongoing conversation with Minnesotans to provide them with important information about the marriage amendment, why it’s necessary and what it will accomplish. The videos are in a question and answer format and will be released on a weekly basis throughout the campaign. Some of the topics include: “What is the Marriage Protection Amendment?”; “Is there a clear and present threat to marriage in Minnesota?”; “Why is marriage worth preserving?”; and “What are the public goods that marriage promotes?
“We especially want to thank Kalley Yanta, a veteran former news anchor and devoted mother for volunteering her time to make these important videos,” said Helmberger. “We are grateful for Kalley’s faithful commitment to preserving marriage in Minnesota and for her experience and poise in presenting the various topics. We are confident that she will be well received by Minnesotans across the State.”
“The Marriage Minute is a great resource for understanding the proposed Marriage Protection Amendment and equipping people to speak about it. We encourage all Minnesotans to view the videos and share them with family, friends and neighbors,” concluded Helmberger.
