GSE's IMMEDIATE COMMUNIQUE To Gov. Corzine
Regarding today's Ruling

"Dear Governor Corzine and members of the New Jersey Legislature:

We 268 community leaders are a cross-section of the vast progressive base of the New Jersey electorate. We include 84 African-American community leaders, 68 Latino/a community leaders, 54 labor union leaders and organizers, and 62 leaders from grassroots advocacy organizations that are predominantly straight. In light of today’s ruling by the New Jersey Supreme Court, we express our support for marriage-equality legislation.

We are among the majority of New Jerseyans who support marriage for same-sex couples. According to a 2006 Zogby-Garden State Equality Poll, 56 percent of New Jersey support marriage equality while only 39 percent oppose it. The other recent statewide polls also show that a majority of New Jerseyans support marriage equality.

As members of Garden State Equality’s African-American, Latino/a and Labor Caucuses, together with allies from grassroots advocacy organizations, we ask you to keep New Jersey the State That Doesn’t Hate. Please pass 100 percent marriage equality legislation so New Jersey can treat all its families equally."
