A Message From Equality Florida:
No committed couple should ever have to worry about their relationship being questioned in an emergency or whether they'll be called when their partner is in a life-threatening accident.
Last week Tampa City Council Member Yolie Capin and the entire City Council directed the city attorney to draft a proposed policy in the coming weeks.
Click here to thank the city council members for addressing this critical issue. Send them a note to tell them it's time for Tampa to pass a domestic partnership registry.
A domestic partnership registry is a simple thing. If created, unmarried gay and straight couples could register as legal families. Once registered, you'll be notified if your partner or partner's children are in an emergency. You'll have hospital visitation rights. You'll have end of life decision making powers. You can pick your partner's children up from school. You can make decisions for
your partner after death.
More and more places are learning the benefits of offering domestic partnerships, recognizing that Domestic Partner Registries are the best way for local governments to create the strongest protections for gay and straight families.
We encourage Tampa leaders to model their policy after registries treated in Florida communities like Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Monroe, Gainesville and Orlando.
Click here to join us in calling on the Tampa City Council to pass a domestic partnership registry. Tell them it's time that the City of Tampa send the message that all families are welcome!
