Maryland PFLAG members lobby State Legislature

Yesterday morning representatives from PFLAG Chapters across the state of Maryland traveled to the State Capitol in Annapolis to lobby their Delegates and Senators during a special session of the Maryland State Legislature. The lobby day was organized by Marylanders for Marriage Equality, a broad coalition that includes a number of local and national LGBT and allied organizations including PFLAG. Kicking off the day, Maryland House Majority leader, Kumar P. Barve spoke to supporters who were gathered outside the Capitol building.

PFLAG members and other participants encouraged their State Legislators to pass the marriage equality bill and a gender identity anti-discrimination bill by the end of the 2012 legislative session. PFLAG Policy Director, Rhodes Perry, and Policy Intern, Laura Van Dyke, represented PFLAG National, and worked on mobilizing local PFLAG members from across the state to raise their voices in support of this vital legislation that will help build stronger families ensuring that all Marylanders have some level of job security, housing protections and yes, the freedom to marry. It’s really that simple.

Take Action - If you live in Maryland contact your State Delegates and Senators and encourage them to pass the marriage equality and the gender identity anti-discrimination bills by the end of the 2012 legislative session. Please be sure to call before the end of October 19th. To learn who your state legislators are, please visit http://mdelect.net/.
