In honor of all the activity in the Supreme Court this week with regards to marriage equality, we would like to honor all the Washingtonians who made history this year by passing Referendum 74. In November 2012, Washington became the 6th state to pass marriage equality and the 1st state to uphold that right at the ballot.
Zach Silk, campaign manager for Washington United for Marriage, issued the following statement after R74 was approved: “This is an historic day for Washington, an historic day for our country and, most of all, for families across the state who have dreamed of this day. From the beginning, this campaign told the stories of loving couples and their families who simply want to get married… Yes, we made history, but more importantly, we helped protect and defend thousands of families across the state.”
Here’s hoping that our Supreme Court justices can be on the right side of history too!
