Joining a broad and growing coalition from across the public, private and non-profit sectors, the House of Delegates and Executive Committee of the Rhode Island Bar Association (RIBA) endorsed HB5015, the marriage equality bill pending in the General Assembly.
"We greatly appreciate the endorsement of the Rhode Island Bar Association," said Ray Sullivan, Rhode Islanders United for Marriage campaign director. "Access to the unique protection and recognition of marriage to all Rhode Island families is of paramount importance to the fair administration of justice. The Bar Association understands this, and we are proud to have them stand in support of our grassroots campaign to bring marriage equality to the Ocean State."
The Rhode Island Bar Association was founded in 1896, and serves all licensed attorneys in the state.
