The black church in Prince George’s County stands to wield wide influence in the outcome of the gay marriage referendum when it is decided by voters this fall, but the first step is getting to the ballot. Under Maryland law the sponsors of the effort to place this issue on the ballot have until June to get their signatures in and verified. Feeling the pressure churches all over the county are holding voter registration and petition drives. The latest is Fort Washington Baptist Church.
Fort Washington Baptist Church will host a voter registration and petition drive for the Referendum on Marriage. We hope that you can help us get the word out to local residents.
Voter Registration and Petition Drive for the Referendum on Marriage
Saturday, June 16, 9a.m.-1 p.m.
