Pledge “MarriageRights”

More details
This Pledge supports the appeal for donations in support of Celia Kitzinger and Sue Wilkinson. They lost their life savings as the result of a failed attempt to have their legal Canadian marriage recognised in the UK. They hope to mount an appeal against the decision; a decision which they say "will not stand the test of time."

This pledge originated as part of the "Equal Marriage BRights" campaign at showing the support of brights for equality in the civic treatment of sexuality. (You do not have to be a bright to sign the pledge.)

This pledge has now closed; it was successful!
