Victory for Arizona’s progressive political strategy

Looks like some of the key players behind the controversial “Beyond Marriage” manifesto released earlier this year were onto something: as they predicted, Arizona became the first state in the country to defeat a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, thanks to an effort that concentrated on fighting against marital status discrimination and in favor of protections for all unmarried couples and families.

The successful strategy adopted by Arizona Together – to argue that marriage should *not* be the line by which people are afforded benefits and protections – not only preserved domestic partnerships but kept the door open for advocates to make a case for gay marriage down the road.

Congratulations to aztogether.org.
