State of Washington Archives: on Civil Rights


Jay Inslee: Marriage equality represents best of who we are as a state

And this is a very special time in history for many other families. People all across Washington stood up for fairness and family in approving marriage equality last November. We should all be proud. The vote on Referendum 74 represents the best of who we are as a state. It should be an inspiration for the progress we can make toward equality, fairness and justice across all of Washington. It has been an amazing journey over the past year and a half, as I've traveled to all corners of the state.
