Unfortunate news. The Maine LGBT Civil Rights March has been postponed indefinitely.
In case you missed the wall post yesterday, here is our message to everyone:

The Maine LGBT Civil Rights March has been postponed indefinitely. After reflection on the input received from Mainers who participated in our open conference calls and individuals and organizations who provided feedback along the way, the decision has been made not to proceed at this time. We garnered significant support from inside Maine and across the country and were successful at handling logistical tasks; however, we were unable to generate enough participation from grassroots organizers on the ground within Maine itself to give it a life of its own. We will gladly share the logistical planning and the lessons we have learned with grassroots supporters who wish to continue efforts to organize a Civil Rights March in Maine.

We on the coordinating committee are proud of our efforts. We know there is a lot of work ahead in the struggle to achieve equality and it is important work. We will attain full equality for LGBT people and families only through the dedication and hard work of people like you. We thank all of you who supported us. Those of us who have lived in Maine our whole lives will continue to work within our state to battle for full LGBT equality; those of us from the rest of the country will continue to support our allies in Maine as we all battle for full equality throughout our nation.
