Closer to Equality in Washington State
Maine makes me sad, but this makes me HAPPY!
See http://approvereferendum71.org/ for more information. Kathy Reim of PFLAG made an important point in an email today. While many of the votes came from King County, as expected, many did NOT. If you look at the state map and statistics on the Washington State site, you'll see that we got SOME votes in every county, and 30 to 40 percent in many of the rural counties. We are making progress, and this is not a "liberal" issue, or a "city" issue. It is simply a civil rights issue, and WE ALL HAVE EQUAL RIGHTS IN THIS COUNTRY. We just have to get the laws and judicial system to align with our Constitution.
Let's keep working.
