Marylanders for Marriage Equality, the coalition of labor, faith and civil liberties groups seeking to uphold Maryland’s recently passed marriage equality law, announced Thursday that it had reached a milestone, with more than 100 organizations signing on as partners. The announcement of the coalition’s newest partners comes just three days after the release of ballot language for the November 6 referendum known as Question 6, which will determine whether the marriage equality law, passed by the legislature in February and signed by the governor in March, will be upheld or overturned. If upheld, the law would make Maryland the seventh state to allow same-gender couples to obtain a civil marriage license.
