Yesterday Starbucks, Google, and Alcoa become the latest major corporations to endorse marriage equality in Washington state, joining other leaders such as Microsoft, Nike and Group Health Plan, among others.

Washington United for Marriage, the coalition working to pass marriage equality in Washington State, of which HRC is a proud founding member, released this statement:

“We thank Starbucks, Google, Alcoa and the more than two dozen other businesses that recently came out publically in support of marriage equality,” said Lacey All, Chair of Washington United for Marriage.  “Marriage equality provides a multitude of intangible benefits to Washington businesses.  Recognizing the relationships of all – irrespective of sexual orientation – means an open and innovative business climate that ensures fundamental fairness and basic civil rights for all.  The addition of these companies continues to show that momentum in Washington State is on the side of equality for all Washingtonians.”

The momentum for marriage equality is on our side and we are closer than ever to seeing marriage equality become a reality in Washington state.
