Thousands Call on Ohio Attorney General to Stop Blocking Marriage Equality
May 16, 2014 by Lynne Bowman, Regional Field Director
Yesterday, Why Marriage Matters Ohio delivered over 6,000 petitions to Attorney General Mike DeWine asking him to drop his appeal of a federal judge's ruling that Ohio must recognize out of state same-sex marriages.
The public education campaign, of which HRC is a founding member, is working across the Buckeye State to educate Ohioans on why Ohio's marriage laws should recognize all loving and committed couples.
According to a recently released Quinnipac University poll, 50 percent of Ohioans support same-sex marriage while 43 percent oppose it. Support first hit 50 percent in February.
