MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9: Minneapolis Mayor Rybak to Invite Same-Sex Milwaukee Couples to Marry in Minneapolis
WHAT: The Mayorof Minneapolis,R.T. Rybak, will unveil a new ad campaign that will run in Milwaukee-area publications that invites same-sex couples from Milwaukee and across Wisconsin to travel to Minneapolis to get legally married.
Mayor Rybak is a long-standing advocate for the freedom for all couples to marry and was a leader in the fight to enact marriage equality in Minnesota. He strongly encourages Wisconsin to reverse course and pass the freedom to marry for all couples — but until that happens, he wants same-sex Milwaukee and Wisconsin couples to marry in Minneapolis.
