New Jersey, USA: ACLU Renews Push for Marriage Equality

New JerseyWith a new leader, the New Jersey chapter of the ACLU is jumping back into the marriage equality fight with both feet. LGBTQ Nation reports:

The New Jersey chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has renewed its push to legalize gay marriage in the state under a new executive director. The push comes a year after Republican Gov. Chris Christie vetoed a bill allowing gay couples to marry and weeks after Democratic leaders in the legislature agreed to work to override the veto. “The ACLU of New Jersey is going to do everything in its power to make marriage equality a reality,” said Udi Ofer, the group’s executive director. “It’s unacceptable that we have one person stopping same-sex marriage from becoming a reality in New Jersey.”

It all depends on whether a) Governor Christie has a change of heart, b) the legislature can override a potential veto, or c) they decide to put it on the ballot.
