Sign the Petition Today — Make Domestic Partners Protections a Reality

Share

What if your partner was in the hospital and you legally couldn’t visit him or her? Or if you got seriously ill, and your partner couldn’t take time off from work to help care for you?

Thousands of our family members, friends and neighbors in committed and caring same-sex relationships don’t have basic legal protections like hospital visitation or family leave. You can help change that.

Governor Doyle’s budget plan included those basic legal protections for same-sex couples, and the Joint Finance Committee will vote on whether or not to keep those legal protections in the budget this week.

Sign the petition today to the members of the Joint Finance Committee and take a stand with thousands of other Wisconsinites in support of domestic partner protections. We’ll deliver the petitions to the Joint Finance Committee and make sure that our leaders get the message loud and clear.

The public overwhelmingly supports basic legal protections like allowing domestic partners to visit their loved one in the hospital. We must make sure our leaders know this is our bottom line. Sign the petition today and take a stand to protect all committed couples in Wisconsin.

You can make the difference.
