Activists with Equality Florida, the largest LGBT rights group in the state, have kicked off a campaign to legalize gay marriage.

The campaign, called “Get Engaged,” is being billed as the group’s “statewide call to action with the goal of securing the freedom to marry in Florida,” On Top Magazine reported.

Equality Florida Executive Director Nadine Smith didn’t specify whether the campaign would include a petition to repeal the gay marriage ban law that was approved in 2008, the magazine reported.

“We’re not in a position to say that that’s the best course,” she told On Top Magazine. “So I would say the best answer is we’re not committed to the 2014 ballot. But every option remains on the table. It will depend on a lot of factors. The path … is not yet certain.”
