Last night, WPRI TV released a new poll confirming what we already knew: An overwhelming and clear majority of Rhode Islanders support marriage equality.
This poll not only validates the huge shift in momentum we’ve seen on the ground in the last year, but more importanly, it should be a wake up call to every politician who continues to oppose equal rights. With just about three months until the General Assembly returns to session, it’s obvious that we’ve got momentum on our side. That’s good news.
But now we can expect our opponents, the so-called National Organization for Marriage, will dump a ton of money and resources into Rhode Island to push their anti-equality agenda. Can you help MERI fight back by making a contribution of $25 or $50 right now?
We’re never going to be a big-money organization like NOM, but I don’t think we need to be. With your help we can raise the resources we need to stay in the fight for equal rights for all loving, committed couples in Rhode Island.
This isn’t just a fight worth fighting, it’s a fight we need to win. Together we can get it done.
