New Jersey’s Garden State Equality Hosts ‘24 Hours for Marriage Equality’
February 16, 2009On Thursday, February 19, 2009, New Jersey will mark the two-year anniversary of New Jersey's failed civil union law. Over the past two years, studies have shown that civil unions in New Jersey are failing couples, just as we see both civil unions and domestic partnerships not providing full equality in other states such as Vermont, Maine, and Oregon. The failure of these laws reaffirms that marriage is indeed the only way to achieve equality.
Join Garden State Equality for 24 HOURS FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY and work to end the inequality in New Jersey by supporting marriage equality. It all begins at 7:00 pm on Fight Back Night, Wednesday, February 18, 2009, and continues through Thursday night, February 19th. The events are listed here.
