Maryland Marriage Equality: 146 Days Out
June 14, 2012 by Jeremy Pittman, Deputy Field Director
Just one day after President Obama urged Maryland voters to support the state’s marriage equality law this November, HRC President Chad Griffin was in Baltimore urging HRC members, supporters and allies to get involved with Marylanders for Marriage Equality.
Griffin told those in attendance at the community event at Baltimore’s Bay Café that HRC would continue to invest in the Marylanders for Marriage Equality campaign that led the successful efforts this year to pass the state’s marriage equality law. He said that the campaign for marriage equality is not only for those couples who will marry but also for young LGBT teenagers who will grow up with the promise of equality.
Marylanders for Marriage Equality Campaign Director Josh Levin announced new campaign offices in Baltimore and Silver Spring and encouraged attendees to volunteer.
Attendees applauded when HRC National Field Director Marty Rouse recognized Maryland Delegates Maggie McIntosh, Luke Clippinger, and Mary Washington for their leadership passing the marriage equality law. He then stoked up the crowd with a passionate reminder about the short 147 days remaining before voters in Maryland will cast their ballots on marriage equality.
