Expedia Joins Washington State Marriage Equality Fight

The battle for same sex marriage gathers more corporate support in Washington state. On line travel giant Expedia.com has came out both vocally and with a donation for Washington United for Marriage.

They have raised over $1.8 million in August and a total of over $7.3 million so far. There has also been an impressive 13,866 of individual donors. “We strive to actively promote equality in our workplace and are committed to treating one another with respect and dignity.” said Expedia CEO and President Dara Khosrowshahi in his announcement for support.

Washington’s Governor Christine Gregoire signed the marriage equality into law in February but opponents of the legislation wasted no gathering enough signatures to take it to a vote this November.
