Kickoff planned for effort to defeat marriage amendment


Community residents, faith leaders and parents will gather in Brainerd Saturday to organize opposition to the marriage amendment that will be on the ballot in November.

The event will be conducted at 10:15 a.m. Saturday at the First Congregational United Church of Christ at 415 Juniper St. in Brainerd. Organizers say the amendment would limit the freedom to marry for same-sex couples in Minnesota.
