May 9, 2013

The march toward marriage equality continues, with the Minnesota House passing marriage equality legislation today by a vote of 75-59.

The legislation now shifts to the Senate. Gov. Mark Dayton has pledged to sign the bill, so if the Senate passes it, Minnesota would become the 12th marriage equality state, following on the heels of  Rhode Island and Delaware.

Take Action: Minnesotans can help to push marriage over the finish line by contacting their state legislators here.

Our work in Minnesota: The Task Force, which has offices in Minneapolis, is hard at work in Minnesota working to secure marriage equality. We invested significantly in Minnesotans United for All Families during the successful campaign to reject the constitutional amendment that sought to ban the freedom to marry for same-sex couples last year, and we’re now working to win marriage equality in the state. This includes serving on the board of Minnesotans United for All Families since its inception, dedicating our faith organizers to work full time on the ground in Minnesota, and organizing “Conversations with People You Know” trainings.

On to the Senate!
