Equality Maryland
January 25, 2010

The Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Protection Act will be re-introduced this session. Lawmakers won’t support the bill unless they are asked, and the best people to ask are the voters who live in their district – that would be you! [Link]

One Iowa: Celebrate Freedom to Marry Week!

January 19, 2010
This time last year, we were anticipating the possibility of marriage equality. Now, a year later, we are one of only five states to fully realize the freedom to marry for gay and lesbian couples. But with this victory came those who would take that freedom away.
