Lawyers for Marriage, an organization of Minnesota attorneys in support of the proposed Marriage Protection Amendment on the November ballot, has been formed to campaign in support of the amendment. The organization was formed to be a resource for understanding the legal and social importance of Minnesota’s existing legal definition of marriage.
The organization of local attorneys will serve as an adjunct to Minnesota for Marriage, the campaign committee leading support for the Marriage Protection Amendment. Other members of the organization’s executive committee include Attorney Roger Magnuson; Teresa Collett of the University of St. Thomas School of Law; William A. LeMire of Arthur Chapman Kettering Smetak and Pikala; and Evan Wilson, in-house counsel.
Attorneys across the state are invited to join the organization and to participate in their communities to get out the word about the reason Minnesota needs this constitutional amendment to reinforce what marriage means for all citizens of our state. Community outreach and speaking events on the legal dimensions of both the marriage amendment and redefining marriage will be the main purpose of the organization, but it is also an opportunity to network with other lawyers who support marriage between one man and one woman.
