Marriage Equality Rhode Island
Board Member

Marriage Equality Rhode Island is a grassroots organization that works to secure equal marriage rights for all Rhode Island couples, regardless of sexual orientation or identity. MERI's goal is to win access to marriage for all Rhode Island couples by June, 2011. As one of only five states without a so-called "Defense of Marriage Act," and with open access to marriage just across the border in both Massachusetts and Connecticut, Rhode Island is uniquely poised to be a leader in the marriage equality movement.
