Support Marriage Equality in New York

From The Human Rights Campaign:

HRC invites you to take action for
NY Marriage Equality!

Click here to find the Albany number of your Assemblymember.
When you speak to your Assemblymember's office remember to give them the number of the marriage bill (A.8590). Ask them to support its passage and to advocate with Speaker Silver and their fellow Assemblymembers to vote on the bill before the session ends on June 21.

Please report to Brian Coffin of the Pride Agenda what the Assemblymembers say about marriage equality.

Bcoffin@prideagenda.org (or) 518-472-3330 ext 304

See below for Volunteer Opportunities
to Help Pass Marriage Bill

Now that this moment is here and the Assembly is deciding on whether to vote this year to end the discriminatory denial of marriage to LGBT families, we need you pick up the phone and let your Assemblymember know you want them to pass this bill.


Even Assemblymembers who are co-sponsors or have said they will support the marriage bill need to hear from you again. If you haven?t ever contacted your Assemblymember on this issue, now is the time you need to do it.

Working together we can made this happen! Start making those phone calls now! Contact Your Assemblymember!

AWSOME!!!

I still cannot believe that New York is behind the times in this area - and that New Jersey is more forward thinking... amazing.

thanks for posting this. Hopefully the Northeast will have NY amongst the states to be accepting of equal marriage rights for ALL and the rest of the country will follow along soon after..
