With Governor Martin O’Malley’s signature, marriage equality will become law in Maryland. Maryland will be the eighth state to enact such a law.

In just three weeks, following a major court victory against Proposition 8, marriage equality bills have passed in Washington, New Jersey, and now Maryland.

Despite New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s heartbreaking veto, the legislature’s pro-equality vote marked a powerful moment in this years-long battle.

These victories are exhilarating, but they are not accidents. All of these gains are the result of years of working together to elect fair-minded candidates and placing organizers on the ground to build support for these bills.

Join thousands around the country in congratulating Maryland on this remarkable moment.

Congratulations, Maryland!
