VICTORY: Rhode Island Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

gay marriage

Rhode Island’s marriage equality bill had already passed in the state House when Lisa Roseman Beade started a MoveOn Petition to state senators asking for their support. Senators couldn’t ignore the overwhelming call for marriage equality from their constituents, including the 1,100 MoveOn members who signed Lisa’s petition. On April 24, the state Senate approved the bill by a vote of 26-12. Governor Lincoln Chafee signed the bill on May 2, making Rhode Island the 10th state to legalize same-sex marriage.
