Over the weekend, The Garden State Equality held a free wine and cheese open house in Red Bank, NJ for all their members to show their love and appreciation. The New Jersey Women and Aids Network were one of those privileged to attend the fundraiser at the Hip and Humble Home, for marriage equality. The home furnishing store was gracious enough to donate 25% of all purchases that day to Garden State Equality's campaign to override Governor Christie's veto of the marriage equality bill.
The invitation read: "212 LGBT civil rights laws at the state, county and local levels in New Jersey our founding in 2004--and now we're one of only three states in American history to pass a marriage equality. Those are your achievements, dear members."
The event was a success bringing in a diverse group of individuals to talk about the community, political views, the upcoming election, marriage equality, occupy wall street,economy, LGBT rights, education etc. Among us were lawyers, activists, retired non-profit workers, and business owners, all in one room for a common purpose. Equality.

We'd like to personally thank the members of Garden State Equality for the invite!
