You are making a difference

Dail EireannWe are incredibly grateful to anyone who's taken the time to call, e-mail, and most importantly visit their TDs to talk about marriage equality. We've been told time and time again that visiting is the most effective way to engage with your TD. So by sharing your stories, and asking for equality, you are making a difference.

How do we know? We've seen an increase in the number of TDs indicating their support for marriage equality, and we've had many meetings to discuss the issue further. We've also seen an increase in the number of Parliamentary Questions (or "PQs") being submitted by TDs around the Constitutional Convention, addressing the inequalities of Civil Partnership, and asking about the children of same sex couples.

Thank you to all the TDs who have raised these issues in the Dáil. And thanks to all of you for continuing to campaign for equality - we couldn't do what we do without you.
