Thursday, September 4, 2014 (appoximately 4 AM) — 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upholds prior ruling that Indiana and Wisconsin bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional.
FairTalk is a grassroots group working to achieve full marriage equality for same-sex couples in Indiana by fostering respectful conversations between people on all sides of the issue.
We are currently working to defeat the proposal to write relationship discrimination into the Indiana constitution (HJR3). We hope you will join us in this fight.
Site Updates Coming Soon
FairTalk is broadening the focus of our efforts following the defeat of the two sentence HJR-3 and the delay that entailed in advancing an amendment to the Indiana constitution.
We remain committed to defeating any such discriminatory amendment and promoting marriage equality in Indiana. Our board has decided to refocus on equality, acceptance and recognition, i.e., social justice for LGBTQ individuals, across a wider range of range of issues. We are developing materials to specifically focus on areas like employment, public accommodations, bullying of LGBTQ youth in schools, adoption, minority stress as well as marriage equality.
Our strategy as always is to promote respectful conversations between people with different positions on these issues.
