councilchangOn Thursday, Honolulu Councilmember Stanley Chang introduced a resolution calling on the Hawaii Legislature and Governor Neil Abercrombie to pass a marriage equality bill this year. In a statement released yesterday, Councilmember Chang called on Hawaii’s elected officials to pass legislation that ensures equal protections for all families in the Aloha State:

“I introduced this resolution because I’m proud to stand up for equal rights for same-sex couples in Hawaii. We’re overdue in guaranteeing that the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender communities enjoy the same rights and freedoms as everyon else. I urge our friends at the State Legislature to pass marriage equality this session, and I ask my colleagues at the Honolulu City Council to join me.”

Honolulu’s City Council is expected to take up the resolution this Thursday, February 14th.

Hawaii United for Marriage thanks Councilmember Chang for his leadership in securing the freedom to marry and hope that his colleagues on the City Council join him in supporting marriage equality.
