The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland's (ACLU-MD) Marriage Fairness Campaign, in partnership with the Marylanders for Marriage Equality coalition, is fighting for the freedom to marry of all Marylanders. 

Marriage equality is about allowing all loving, committed couples to make a lifetime commitment to each other and build strong families. People from all walks of life, including gay and lesbian couples, want their children to live in a loving, stable, committed home and be protected under the law. 

With the support of Governor O'Malley, the time is now for the Maryland Legislature to do the right thing for Maryland families and extend the freedom to marry to gay and lesbian couples.

      Marriage Equality - Eternal Vigilance

      We did it! Because of strong and determined activists like you, we have reached more than 3,800 signatures! Thank you for getting us this far! The Civil Marriage Protection Act has been signed into law by Governor O’Malley. Thomas Jefferson said “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” We can’t stop now. Opposition organizations are galvanizing their support against equality. They are ready willing and able to spend big bucks to stop same-sex marriage in Maryland by gathering enough signatures for a referendum measure in November. But support for equality is growing and we have momentum!

      Please continue to share this petition showing your support for continuing to keep marriage legal for all Marylanders.

      It shames me to live in a state without this basic right. The pursuit of happiness is an unalienable right!

      All people should have equal rights! Their sexuality should not pertain.

      Everyone should be able to express love to each other without being judged or discriminated against.
