Now that the battle for marriage equality n Maine has been won, the state’s advocacy group is shifting focus. The Kennebec Journal reports:
The Portland-based advocacy group, EqualityMaine, released a five-year strategic plan recently to outline its overarching goals through 2018, focused on building and educating communities about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and issues statewide. It’s the group’s first major step forward since November, when nearly 53 percent of Maine voters backed same-sex marriage.
If successful, the move will solidify support for the new law, making it less likely to be repealed at a future date.
