US Senator Brian Schatz Urges Hawaii Lawmakers to Pass Marriage Equality

January 29, 2013

US Senator Brian Schatz has added his voice to the growing chorus of leaders in Hawaii who are calling on the State Legislature to pass marriage equality this year. In a statement released yesterday, Senator Schatz said:

“The time has come to make marriage equality a reality for Americans around the country, so that all people can exercise that right in freedom and without restriction. I am pleased that President Obama supports marriage equality, and that the State of Hawai’i has a proud history of leadership in civil rights. I encourage State lawmakers to pass legislation that will ensure equal rights for all Hawai’i residents.”

We thank Senator Schatz for his support of the freedom to marry and join him in urging the Legislature to ensure that all Hawaii families are protected and valued by passing marriage legislation this year.
