Yes Equality is taking to the road today (Wednesday 22 April 2015) with the launch of their nationwide bus tour that will cover 66 locations in 26 counties over 27 days.
The Yes Equality bus was unveiled today at Dublin’s City Hall by a team of Yes Equality campaigners and canvassers. The well-wishers included mothers, fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers who queued to get on the bus, symbolising the significance of the tour which carries their hopes and dreams for equality for all their children with the delivery of a Yes vote.
The Yes Equality bus is bringing the case for a Yes vote to town squares across the country. National and local celebrities will be joining the tour at different locations.
Speaking at today’s launch, Yes Equality spokesperson Grainne Healy said:
“The cornerstone of our campaign is to engage in conversations with the voting public about the importance of voting Yes for marriage equality.”
“With a month to go before polling day, the Yes Equality bus will take these conversations to every county. Working with local Yes Equality groups, of which there are 45 all across Ireland, we look forward to making the case for a Yes vote to the men and women of Ireland. A vital part of the tour is to address any questions the public may have in advance of the referendum on 22 May.”
