Campaign to Defeat Indiana’s Marriage Amendment to Kick Off Tomorrow
Tomorrow, a bipartisan coalition, including businesses, HRC and other grassroots organizations, will kickoff a statewide campaign in Indiana to defeat HJR6, a proposed state constitutional amendment prohibiting marriage equality.
During the 2014 legislative session, Indiana lawmakers will have the opportunity to stand in support of marriage equality by either choosing to table or vote down the amendment or to send it to voters for a statewide referendum.
The bill first passed the General Assembly in 2011, and, if approved in next year's session, would be placed before voters at the November 2014 ballot box.
The majority of Americans support marriage equality, including Indiana Senate Joe Donnelly who announced his support in April.
The event is open to the public and will be held at the Indianapolis Artsgarden on Wednesday, August 21 at 12 p.m.
