Marriage equality

In August of 2013, the Rhode Island Foundation played a small role in helping to make history. Same-sex marriage was written into law that summer, making Rhode Island the 10th state across the nation to recognize the civil rights of gay and lesbian couples. Through our Equity Action fund, we supported Gay & Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD) and Marriage Equality Rhode Island (MERI), the two organizations at the forefront of field organizing, public education, and outreach for marriage equality.
