NUS-USI President Olivia Potter-Hughes has encouraged people to sign the online petition from Love Equality in support of marriage equality. Olivia said that Northern Ireland must send out a message that it is a welcoming and respectful place, and that delivering marriage equality immediately would help demonstrate this.
The petition can be found at https://www.amnesty.org.uk/actions/say-yes-marriage-equality-northern-ireland
NUS-USI President Olivia Potter-Hughes said “I am calling on everyone who supports building a respectful, equality-driven society to sign this petition in support of marriage equality.
“A key indicator of a positive and welcoming society is how well it tackles inequality. Marriage equality must be delivered as a matter of urgency to extend marriage rights across our society.”
