Washington United for Marriage (WUM), the broad, bipartisan statewide coalition working to defend the state’s marriage law, announced that REI, the outdoor retailer founded by a group of Pacific Northwest mountaineers in 1938, has endorsed support for marriage equality in a blog post by CEO and President Sally Jewell to REI’s 11,000 employees.

“REI is taking a position in support of marriage equality — an issue that is important to the co-op as an inclusive organization and a welcoming place to work and do business,” wrote Jewell, who went on to describe the importance of her own 34-year marriage through raising children, job changes and relocation, and the joys and challenging of aging parents.
