Working for Marriage Equality in Rhode Island

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Marriage Equality bill during the Senate Judiciary Hearing last night. 

The hearing lasted until 1:33am and one thing was clear, advocates for equality had better stories and arguments than our opponents.  No vote was taken, so stay tuned for further updates, and check out this great story about one of our supporters who gave compelling testimony: R.I. couple’s fight for gay marriage is personal – PROVIDENCE JOURNAL

As we ramp up our organizing activities in conjunction with Marriage  Equality Rhode Island (MERI), we’re going to need all hands on deck to be successful this year.  We need volunteers to make phone calls, visit with legislators, attend events and generally make your voices heard.
