Marriage equality is a four-state campaign
Note from GLAAD
See GLAAD's information about Referendum 74, which would approved marriage equality for Washington, here.
In the early days of the fight for marriage equality, circa 2004, supporters in states across the country found themselves mostly alone and largely outgunned — scrambling to counter opponents' messages at a time when barely a third of the country was on their side. Less than a decade later, organizers of marriage equality campaigns in Washington and three other states speak of America's growing embrace, of key endorsements they've won and broad coalitions they've formed. And the four campaigns are doing something else they've not done before: They are working more collaboratively, picking through the debris of past defeats while looking to national LGBT equality groups for guidance.
