Same-sex benefits under attack in our community
This is urgent.
One month ago, an ordinance extending equal benefits for employees in same-sex partnerships passed by a vote of Chattanooga's city council, a fantastic step forward for equality.
But this month, the ordinance was challenged by opponents of the freedom to marry, and now same-sex partner benefits are on hold pending a 2014 vote.
Our town is becoming a battleground for equality, and we need your immediate help.
With this newest anti-equality attack on our civil rights, Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke's public support for the freedom to marry is more important than ever.
Thank you for standing up for our town!
