Washington State Gay Marriage Win

By Charlotte Robinson, November 09, 2012
As you know we had a clean sweep of all four states where gay marriage appeared on the ballot. In Washington State the battle was so close it couldn’t be determined until the day after the election. We thought we’d share this statement from Washington United for Marriage campaign manager Zach Silk in response to the concession by opponents that R74 will be approved & the state's bipartisan marriage law protected. Silk stated, "This is an historic day for Washington, an historic day for our country & 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 & their families who simply want to get married. All of us, from our volunteers, to our staff to the nearly 20,000 donors who invested in the freedom to marry, are enormously grateful to the voters of Washington State. Yes, we made history, but more importantly, we helped protect & defend thousands of families across the state. We have always understood that there are good people on the other side of this issue. Yet, we remain confident that once people see how much marriage matters to families, they will realize that the love & commitment that marriage embodies only strengthens families, neighborhoods and communities."Updates to Come...:)
