WE DEMAND EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
Contact Your State Legislators Today and Tell Them to Enact Marriage Equality in New Jersey!
In 2007, New Jersey's civil union law was enacted to provide same-sex couples the same civil rights and responsibilities as married heterosexual couples without calling it "marriage." However, in a very short period of time it has become clear that the measure, and civil unions, do not provide and protect the civil and constitutional rights of same sex couples. Thousands of employers continue to refuse to recognize civil unions as equal to marriage. Despite the law, many employers fail to provide health benefits to their workers' civil union partners. Many New Jersey hospitals still do not allow same-sex couples to make medical decisions for one another and bar same-sex couples to from even visiting one another in the hospital.
It's 2012! THE LEGISLATURE MUST ACT NOW. It is time to provide all couples equal rights under the law. No one should have to wait for equality.
