Marriage Equality

From the summer of 2009 through early January 2010, we focused our legislative efforts on marriage equality in New Jersey, working with our own UU Legislative Ministry of New Jersey and the organization Garden State Equality. We sponsored a speaker, wrote letters and made phone calls, and hosted a "marriage equality action party." Several committee members and friends attended lobby days at the State House in Trenton.

 

On January 7, the NJ Senate voted 14 to 20 against the Freedom of Religion and Equality in Civil Marriage Act Marriage equality efforts in our state will now focus on a judicial remedy, with the help of Lambda Legal.
