2012 was a historic year for marriage equality across the nation – from victories at the polls in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington State, to increased support from Americans of virtually every demographic in poll after poll.

HRC and our members and supporters played an important role in this historic year for marriage. HRC was the largest national funder of the four pro-equality ballot measure campaigns – of the $8 million we invested in efforts to expand marriage equality, $5 million went directly to Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington.
