Tell Delaware Lawmakers: It's Time to Pass Civil Unions Legislation

This petition had 737 supporters

Earlier this year, Equality Delaware announced that they were working with Delaware lawmakers to introduce civil unions legislation in the state -- a move that would allow Delaware to join states like Illinois and Hawaii in recognizing many civil rights for same-sex couples. The goal of the legislation is to afford same-sex couples many of the civil rights that heterosexual, married couples receive in the state -- including inheritance rights, the ability to share insurance benefits, the ability for same-sex couples to raise a family together, and more.

Now this civil unions legislation is getting set for consideration in Delaware's state legislature, with potential for a vote very soon. A number of state lawmakers have signed on to co-sponsor the measure, and there seems to be healthy momentum to get civil unions legislation done in Delaware. Add your voice to these efforts, and let's make Delaware the next state to advance equality for same-sex couples.
