"News & Issues" piece on several Maine groups that have joined an effort to create a statewide coalition to resurrect civil rights for the homosexual community in Maine including Maine Won't Discriminate; the Maine Civil Liberties Union; Maine Speakout Project; Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network; and Maine Rural Network. They will ask the Legislature to pass a new bill protecting the civil rights of gays and lesbians, with an amendment that would give the voters the final say in a referendum on the 2000 ballot. The group rejected launching a signature petition drive because they do not believe it is safe to do so in some parts of the state.
