"No on 1 MAINE WON'T DISCRIMINATE"

The Maine Limiting Protected Classifications Initiative, also known as Question 1, was on the November 7, 1995 ballot in Maine as an indirect initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have limited the protected classifications in future state and local laws to race, color, sex, physical or mental disability, religion, age, ancestry, national origin, familial status and marriage status. It would have repealed existing laws that expanded those classifications. The measure was widely viewed as being aimed at hindering homosexual people from full civil rights.
