Washington, Don’t Take Away Marriage Equality!
Washington state legalized gay marriage in February, making it the seventh state to do so. But now marriage equality in Washington is at risk.
Anti-gay marriage Referendum 74, which would overturn the law allowing gay marriage in the state, got enough signatures to qualify to be put on the November 2012 ballot. 247,331 signatures were collected, which is much more than the minimum of 120,577.
The gay marriage law was supposed to go into effect June 7th, but the signatures have put it on hold.
Please tell Washington state voters to vote “No” for Referendum 74 and preserve marriage equality! Everyone deserves the same rights and to be treated equally under the law!
