Actress Michelle Clunie Says, “Approve 71”
Michelle Clunie, an actress and activist, released a video today that encourages Washington voters to Approve Referendum 71 and get involved with the campaign.
“It’s just wrong,” Clunie says about the attempt to take away the protections that Washington’s domestic partnership law provides to lesbian and gay couples.Watch Actress/Activist Michelle Clunie on Approve 71 here.
Washington voters have until Tuesday to mark their ballots, “Approved,” stamp and sign the envelope and mail them. Washington voters should not delay and mail their ballots today to help ensure Referendum 71 is approved.
When Clunie called the Referendum 71 campaign last week and asked, “What can I do to help?” GLAAD’s Senior Media Strategist Adam Bass began working with her to develop a video message to voters in Washington encouraging them to get involved in the campaign and cast their ballots. Her video today is the results of that work between Clunie, GLAAD and the Referendum 71 campaign.
