Testimony of Marriage Equality Supporters Underway in Maryland

Post submitted by Sultan Shakir, former HRC Director of Youth and Campus Engagement Program

After three hours of  testimony, supporters of marriage equality are going strong, testifying about the many reasons that loving and committed couples should have access to marriage equality.  One couple, Stacy and Barbara, spoke about the need to protect their family, which includes their 10 month old son.  Stacy and Barbara spoke about the need to protect themselves and their son through the institution of marriage.  They spoke about their love and commitment and how they hope that the state in which they live will honor their love and commitment by allowing them to raise their family under the protections of the law.
