Yesterday the Providence City Council passed a resolution in support of marriage equality legislation, HB 5015. This is the second time the City of Providence has passed a resolution supporting marriage for all Rhode Island families.  The council’s vote follows the strong House of Representatives' vote in favor of marriage equality last month.

We expect a vote in the state Senate sometime this spring. The supportive resolution is the latest indication of strong support for marriage across the state and comes on the heels of Wednesday’s launch of Rhode Island Business Leaders for Marriage Equality.

ProvidenceHRC is committed to passing marriage equality in Rhode Island, the last state in New England to approve marriage legislation. We are proud to work alongside Marriage Equality Rhode Island and GLAD staff and dozens of volunteers from across this small state with a big heart.
