Domestic Partnership Vote Today in Phoenix

Today the Phoenix City Council is scheduled to vote on an ordinance to recognize domestic partnerships in the City of Phoenix.

I would like to ask if you are in the Phoenix area to show your support by attending the meeting on Wednesday, December 17th at 3 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 200 W Jefferson, Phoenix, and please call or email your council member and Mayor Phil Gordon to let them know you support the domestic partnership ordinance that will help unmarried couples, gay or straight, take care of each other.

One of the main things that this ordinance would do would be to grant hospital visitation rights to registered domestic partners. Which means the domestic partner of a person in the hospital would be allowed to visit during family hours, giving them the ability to be with and support their loved one during these difficult times in each other’s lives.

It is important after the passing of Proposition 102 that we use our voice and ask those that may be divided on marriage but support our basic right to protect our families to support us and vote yes for this ordinance.

Please make your voice heard, and encourage your friends, neighbors and family members who live in Phoenix to do the same.


1) Call or email Mayor Phil Gordon and your council member now. Visit to find their number. To find your council district, visit

2) Attend the meeting on Wednesday, December 17th at 3 p.m. in City Council Chamber, 200 W Jefferson Street.
