It is a great day for equality!
Marriage equality is one step closer in Washington State and today the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has just upheld the historic 2010 ruling finding Proposition 8 unconstitutional. Same-sex couples in California are one step closer to marriage equality!
The Court stayed today’s decision, so same-sex couples in California will still have to wait before they can once again exercise their right to marry. And the ruling is likely to be appealed. Still, this is an enormous step toward marriage equality, not only for California, but for all Americans.
As close as we are to achieving marriage equality, we must be more vigilant than ever. Continue the conversation with friends, colleagues and family, have your business endorse marriage equality and donate to Washington United ForMarriage.
