google has a reputation for actively participating in policy debates surrounding information access, technology and energy. we do not generally take positions on social, legal or political issues that arise beyond our normal, day-to-day business. with that said, there are issues that are so important that we feel compelled to lend our voice. +Sergey Brin
blogged about this during california's proposition 8 vote (http://googleblog.blogspot.co.uk/2008/09/our-position-on-californias-no-on-8.html
). next month the issue is coming for a vote in our state of washington.
we are proud to support Yes on R74, to uphold washington state's marriage equality law.
i hope to see washington become the first state to make this legal by popular vote.
