Contact your local legislator today.

Today Governor Gregoire introduced a historic bill that will allow members of our LGBTQ community to legally marry the person they love. With recent news that two Washington Republican legislators will support a marriage equality bill, the momentum is building to allow loving and committed same-sex couples to marry in Washington state. If marriage equality is important to you, your help will be needed now and in the coming months.

Writing to your local legislators and talking to your neighbors is a vital step in achieving a historical moment for the Northwest.

Pride Foundation is proud to play a leadership role in the Washington United for Marriage coalition. We know the issue of marriage equality is critical to many of our closest friends, family members and loved ones. It is incredible to be at the tipping point to make Washington state the first state on the west coast to recognize and maintain same-sex marriage.

To contact your local legislators and let them know why you support marriage equality visit the coalition’s website.
