Lawrence's proposed domestic partner registry is expected to come up sometime within the next month or so on the City Commission's agenda. If passed, it would make Lawrence the first city in the state with such a registry.
With the registry debate hearing up, it's time to contact the commissioners. Send your polite notes of support for the registry to all five commissioners. Contact information is here.
Many thanks to Josh at Thoughts From Kansas for his support for the registry and his well-reasoned post. Thanks to Red Letter Day and Mike for his continued work on the registry.
If you're interested in learning more about the registry, you can attend "So, What's a Domestic Partner Registry?" tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Plymouth Congregational Church, 925 Vermont St. in Lawrence.
