Freedom Indiana celebrates NO vote on HJR3

Posted:

Indiana's gay marriage ban will not be on the ballot in November. It was cause for celebration for a marriage equality organization Thursday night.

Freedom Indiana is a state-wide group of businesses and community organizations that are against HJR-3.

The local chapter of the group met to recognize the hard work that volunteers put in to get their supporters to talk to legislators about voting NO on HJR-3.

Member Nathaniel Krouse said, "we came away with a victory with this campaign season, and we're very happy.  And we're celebrating all the amazing volunteers that put in so many hours."

Volunteers within the organization stress their work is not done though.  Legislators have the option of passing the bill again and getting it on the ballot in 2016.

Freedom Indiana members said they'll continue to fight for marriage equality in Indiana.
