Why Marriage Matters Ohio, a marriage equality education campaign supporting the right for any loving, committed Ohio couple to marry, launched today statewide. The launch announcement was simultaneously held in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus. The launch introduced the campaign and its founders: Equality Ohio Education Fund, Freedom to Marry, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Ohio.
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) spoke at the Cleveland launch. “All Americans should able to marry the person they love, and they should be able celebrate that love in Ohio. Full rights should not vary by geographical lines. Why Marriage Matters Ohio will bring this issue of equal rights to the forefront,” Brown said.
With two rulings in favor of gay couples this last month, are things on a roll in Ohio?
