Question 6 and the march of equality
Last week, Maryland made history by delivering an unprecedented victory for marriage equality at the ballot box. The Human Rights Campaign and the NAACP were proud partners in this campaign, working together to build support for Question 6 across Maryland. Though success in this state was matched by others in Maine, Minnesota and Washington, the victory of the Vote for Question 6 campaign in particular provides an important blueprint for the future, especially as marriage equality inevitably moves forward in other states with significant African-American populations.
