DULUTH, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - A campaign phone bank opened today in Duluth to fight and amendment against same-sex marriage, which will be on the ballot in Minnesota next year.

Duluth United for All Families is training staff for the phone bank and has teamed up with 'Minnesotans United for All Families' to defeat the amendment.

Minnesotans will be voting November 2012 whether to allow the amendment against same-sex marriage, into the state constitution, making it harder to fight for gay marriage.

Both organizations believe in supporting all people in loving committed relationships.

"The majority of Minnesotans are in favor of marriage equality for everybody. We're just going to keep doing our work. They say trust God and tie-up your camel, so we're going to keep working," said Gary Anderson, MUFAF volunteer organizer.

State law currently already defines marriage as between a man and a woman.
