Right now, Washington voters are deciding whether to uphold marriage equality legislation or overturn it. This is a key moment in the fight for the freedom to marry for gay and lesbian couples in the Northwest and across the nation, and we donít have a moment to lose.
As Oregonians, we know what it's like to face divisive ballot measures that place our relationships or those of our friends and neighbors up for a public vote. Join Basic Rights Oregon as we help Washington make history and create a climate of change across the Northwest. We're successfully expanding support for the freedom to marry in communities across the state. A win in Washington can help pave the way for Oregon to become the first state in the nation to overturn a constitutional ban on marriage as early as 2014.
Sign the petition today and tell Washington families: we've got your back and we're in it to win it.
As Oregonians, we know what it's like to face divisive ballot measures that place our relationships or those of our friends and neighbors up for a public vote. We know what it's like to be told that all caring and committed couples in our community have the freedom to marry... and then have that freedom taken away.
That is why we want you to know that we have your back, and this time things are going to be different. This is the year we start winning.
I'm joining with Basic Rights Oregon this fall. Oregonians will be knocking doors and calling voters to win the freedom to marry in Washington. Not just because it's the right thing to do for Washington families, but because we know that when Oregon goes to the ballot to become the first state to overturn a constitutional ban on marriage, you'll have our back, too.
