A group of activists gathered outside of New York state senator Carl Kruger’s Brooklyn front yard Sunday, protesting Kruger’s decision to vote against marriage equality earlier month, NBC reported.

Kruger, a Democrat, was one of 38 senators — and eight Democrats — who voted against extending marriage rights to gay people in the state. Since the vote, some activists have called the unmarried Kruger’s sexual orientation into question.

After the protest, organizer Corey Johnson addressed the senator in a post on his own Facebook page: “We’re not going to leave you alone Carl. You came into our homes with your vote — it’s time for us to continue to go to your house until you do the right thing.”
