It Could Have Been The 31st State To Lose. Instead, Its Young People Turned A National Trend Around.

Who doesn’t like a good underdog story?

It begins at 1:28 when a bunch of young go-getters band together to battle a nationwide stigma. We learn about a neat strategy to get people to vote — called a “dorm storm” — at 4:58. At 9:05, she considers what's at stake if they lose the battle. And, yup, the moment you were waiting for happens at 10:02. Keep your tissues handy.

...and they call millennials lazy. Pffft.

(For what it's worth, Arizona was technically the first state to reject a ban on same-sex marriages and civil unions in 2006. However, it changed its mind in 2008 by adopting a ban — revoking its true "first" status, IMO. At the time of this video, 30 states had followed that trend of constitutional bans on same-sex marriage — Minnesota was the first to break that trend. Talk about a c-c-c-combo breaker!)
