Maryland Delegates Holding up Marriage Equality!

Maryland is poised to become the sixth state to gain marriage equality unless the opposition forces change delegates minds. Democratic delegates who previously promised to support marriage equality are now backtracking and holding up a vote. It is essential to contact your state representative and urge them to support full marriage equality.

The following delegates are particularly crucial committee member votes, please email and call them to demand they vote for marriage equality immediately.

Delegate Sam Arora
(410) 841-3528
*Now citing religious beliefs for opposition (Arora Twitter account shows former support for marriage equality).

Delegate Tiffany Alston
(410) 841-3692

Delegate Jill Carter
(410) 841-3283

Delegate Melvin Stukes
(410) 841-3544

The Maryland Senate has passed marriage equality and Governor O'Malley has pledged to sign the legislation should it reach his desk. The House of Delegates is our last hurdle and our opposition is out in full force.

Please repost, forward and tweet this to your friends #Marryland.
