Today, A Washington State Blog Swarm: Thank the Governor

Today, AMERICAblog Gay is participating in a Washington United for Marriage and Daily Kos blog swarm to help support the marriage equality campaign in Washington State. We’re joining Bilerico Project, Pam’s House Blend, Good As You, the Prop 8 Trial Tracker, The Seattle Lesbian, The Bent Angle, on the-Ave, MadProfessah, HRC, Hella Bus, Horsesass.org, Step Forward, LGBT POV, FrontiersLA, the Left Shue, The New Civil Rights Movement and more.

On Wednesday, the Washington State House passed the same-sex marriage bill, and now it the bill is headed to Governor Gregoire’s desk for her signature. After the bill passed, she tweeted:

The Governor promised to sign the bill before Valentine’s Day, which is next Tuesday.

Please click here to thank Governor Gregoire.

Governor Gregoire’s leadership was instrumental to the success of passing a marriage bill in Washington State. She not only supported the bill, but she introduced the bill. This is as much her legislation as it is our community’s legislation.

Please join us during this blog swarm to thank Governor Gregoire for her leadership and her friendship. There is little doubt our opponents will make their voices heard, but we know that together our voice for equality is so much stronger.

Please click here to the Washington United for Marriage’s and Daily Kos’ joint petition to thank Governor Gregoire for making history.

When our friends speak up for us, we need to speak up for our friends, so join us in thanking Governor Gregoire today!

After you sign, share it with your friends: http://wufm.it/4
