Wow! HRC's field organizers cannot believe it...marriage equality is finally realized in New Mexico following a landmark opinion issued unanimously by the state Supreme Court just hours ago. The excitement and pride New Mexicans are feeling today is incredible to see; our phones and e-mails have been busy all morning with folks from around the state who have been waiting on this day for a long time.
Right now, we're prepping for celebration events across the state tonight and hope to see all supporters of marriage equality join the team as we light candles in gratitude and hear from the people who made this possible. It's a historic day and we can't wait to share this moment with our community!
Here are the planned events:
3:30 p.m. at First Christian Church (1809 El Paseo Rd.)
6:00 p.m. at Morningside Park (Corner of Silver and Morningside)
6:00 p.m. at the NM Supreme Court building (237 Don Gaspar)
