A few days after a Senate Committee held a hearing on the pending marriage equality bill, a group of mayors are pushing for the bill’s passage. ABC 6 reports:
Five Rhode Island mayors are banding together to push for gay marriage. The mayors of Providence, Warwick, Pawtucket, Cumberland and Central Falls are launching a campaign today called, “mayors for marriage equality.”
This mirrors a larger movement in the country that we’ve reported on before. At last check, the national Mayors for Marriage Equality had almost 300 members.
It’s great to see this ground-up, grassroots effort to compliment the work done by state-wide and national organizations.
Now if we can just get a Senate floor vote?
