USA, New Jersey: Democratic Politicians Join March for Marriage Equality

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

Newark Mayor Corey BookerNewark Mayor Cory Booker and two other Senate hopefuls joined a march for marriage equality in Montclair, New Jersey. NJ.com reports:

As same-sex marriage faces a crucial test this week in Washington, supporters of marriage equality in New Jersey got a boost of political firepower today from three Democratic candidates running in a special election for U.S. Senate. Newark Mayor Cory Booker, Rep. Rush Holt (D-12th Dist.) and Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6th Dist.) joined hundreds of marchers at Montclair’s Erie Park for the fourth annual “Equality Walk” — a 2.5-mile march in support of same-sex marriage, safe schools and equal rights in the workplace sponsored by the advocacy group Garden State Equality.

With Governor Chris Christie likely to coast to a second term and still adamantly opposed to marriage equality, it’s time for a referendum.

NJ: Marriage Equality Rally Planned in Montclair Tuesday

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Marriage Equality RallyThis past week in a historic vote in New Jersey, the state Assembly voted 42-33 to approve gay marriage. The state Senate also approved the same measure, but Gov. Chris Christie promised to veto the measure as soon as it hit his desk – and he did late Friday.

His decision has come under criticism and some elected officials have said they will work to override the governor’s veto – though it is not clear if there will be enough votes to do so.

In light of what’s happened, there will be a rally for marriage equality on Tuesday night at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Montclair at 67 Church Street.
