Seattle Speaks: Same-Sex Marriage
Tuesday, Oct. 2, 7 to 9 p.m., Town Hall
In February, Gov. Chris Gregoire signed a bill into law making Washington the seventh U.S. state to allow same-sex marriage. That law is headed back into the hands of voters this November in the form of the much-discussed Referendum 74. What are the legal, social and economic implications if the law goes into effect?
Seattle Channel host Brian Callanan will lead a live televised discussion featuring Preserve Marriage Washington director Joseph Backholm, Washington United for Marriage advisor Anne Levinson, Former King County Executive Ron Sims and other leaders, critics and stakeholders including YOU! Join us either at Town Hall or online, where you can take part in the polls and voice your opinion via social media and e-mail. Admission to the event at Town Hall is free but seating is limited and advance registration is required. Seattle Speaks is a partnership of the Seattle Channel, CityClub and Town Hall.
