Washington, DC, City Council on December 15 adopted a marriage equality law which was then signed by Mayor Fenty on Thursday. The 11-2 vote in support of the Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Equality Amendment Act of 2009 was identical to the first-round tally on December 1. Evan Wolfson, executive director of Freedom to Marry, the leading national marriage equality advocacy group, noted, “Five of seven African-American City Council members on the majority African-American Council supported the freedom to marry, and Mayor Adrian Fenty, also African-American, has promised to sign the bill.” [link]
