GLAD and Marriage Equality Rhode Island
GLAD continues to work with our partner Marriage Equality Rhode Island (MERI) to advance an affirmative marriage equality bill and to build a set of legal protections for same-sex couples through legislation.
The 2008 legislative platform includes:
Compassion for All Families Act – would give domestic partners the spousal benefits of family medical leave, nursing home visitation, and funeral planning
Equal Divorce – would allow same-sex couples married outside of Rhode Island to divorce in Rhode Island courts
Equal Marriage – would allow all Rhode Island couples the equal freedom to marry
