On October 29, 2013, NOW members and young activists from UMBC’s College Democrats did a phone bank for Marriage Equality in Illinois. This event was part of NOW’s National Action Campaign: Put a Ring on it. Maryland already decided we want gays and lesbians to be able to marry. Illinois subsequently became the next state to legalize equal marriage! We believe our members’ work contributed to these civil rights successes.
If you want to get involved with the campaign to bring equal marriage to all states, please go to our partner organization’s website and sign up.
On September 5, 2013, Maryland NOW and National NOW attended a Walmart Action at the Capital Plaza Walmart, 6210 Annapolis Road, Hyattsville, Maryland!
