Equality Florida announces campaign to push for gay marriage rights
Equality Florida announced today its "Get Engaged!" campaign, a statewide effort to secure the right to marry for all Floridians.
"As the entire country awaits the Supreme Court's rulings, it is time for all who believe in equality and
fairness to take a clear stand on the right side of history," the organization's executive director Nadine
Smith said in a conference call.
Though education will play a central role in the campaign, the specifics will largely depend on the ruling,
Smith said. The organization plans to hold a telephone town hall in which legal experts will explain the
decision's ramifications for Florida.
"While the fastest path to marriage equality in Florida is not yet certain, we do know that we will not just
wait," Smith said. "We intend to win marriage, and all options are on the table including new legal challenges
and the possibility of going back to the ballot to overturn Florida's discriminatory ban."
