Almost all of us know gay/lesbian couples who were married in another state. 13 States (California, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington) and the District of Columbia now allow gay marriage. And we know committed gay couples who are married in their respective churches, but not able to legally marry in Arizona. Attend this upcoming meeting to find out how you can help in Arizona with this civil rights issue.
