BREAKING: Another Victory! The #Hawaii
Senate has passed the #MarriageEquality
Bill 19-4 (following the earlier successful house vote)! The bill now goes to the governor, who has confirmed he will sign!
Welcome State #16-
the state that was ground zero for the modern marriage equality movement 20 yrs ago (Baehr v Lewin- Consideration of marriage equality by the Hawaii Supreme Court in 1993 sparked the political backlash that led to DOMA). As the bill sponsor said, "What began with Justice Levinson's decision 20 years ago comes full circle today. The arc of justice bends because we.. bend it ourselves, towards justice."
