gov-christine-gregoireWashington Governor Christine Gregoire joins forces with the Human Rights Campaign and contributes her own 36-second spot for the Americans for Marriage Equality video series. The video was released online on Thursday, Feb. 2, the day after the Washington State Senate passed the marriage equality bill. Gov. Christine Gregoire has pledged to sign the bill. If approved, Washington would be the first West Coast state to embrace marriage equality. California briefly recognized gay marriage in 2008. Thanks to Proposition 8, a voter-approved ban went into effect.

Governor Gregoire states in the video, “As an American, a wife and mother, marriage equality is fair, just and right. And it is time.” We applaud Gregoire for making this video and for taking a stand for marriage equality.
