Today The Courage Campaign reported that some of their hard work has paid off. Louis Marinelli, who masterminded the NOM “Summer for Marriage” bus tour, has switched camps.
“I never imagined we would change the heart and mind of one Louis Marinelli, our old adversary” said Arisha Hatch, National Field Director for Courage Campaign's NOM Tour Tracker. Louis announced he’s supporting marriage equality – because of the experience he had on the NOM bus tour."
“Together we made a difference" hatch said, "by confronting NOM and turning out supporters at NOM’s stops all over the country to change Louis’ mind…”
