Garden State Equality expands in its push for same-sex marriage

New Jersey's largest gay rights organization is expanding its efforts to push for passage of same-sex marriage in the state.

Garden State Equality announced Tuesday it is assembling a coalition of civic and civil rights groups to rally for marriage legalization and expand anti-bullying initiatives.

The group has established a Bullying Resource Center at its Montclair office and a website to provide resources and training about bullying to educators, parents and children.

The Human Rights Campaign, the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey, the Communication Workers of America and the Gender Rights Advocacy Association of New Jersey are among the groups joining the coalition.

Coalition leaders tell The Record ( ) they're willing to fight a possible uphill battle following Gov. Chris Christie's veto of gay marriage legislation.
