Join Barb Byrum, Ingham County Clerk, for a candlelight vigil on the eve of oral arguments
April 21, 2015 — Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum issued the first marriage license to a same-sex couple in Michigan during the brief window when marriage equality was legal in our state. Now she's hoping that the U.S. Supreme Court will rule in favor of marriage, and stike down Michigan's marriage ban once and for all. Below, Byrum shares why she is an ardent supporter for the freedom to marry, and while she'll be speaking at a candlelight vigil on the eve of oral arguments, next Monday in Lansing.

April 16, 2015 — There's no doubt about it, we never would have gotten this far if it weren’t for the plaintiff couples in each respective state who decided to do something about this injustice and take on their state’s marriage ban.
This is our moment
April 14, 2015 — On April 27, the day before oral arguments, Michiganders from across the state will gather in Lansing for a vigil on the steps of the Capitol. This candlelight vigil will show that people from all backgrounds believe the country is ready for marriage equality.
