Fairness & Equality Won

FAIRNESS & EQUALITY have won out over FEAR & PREJUDICE.

For the first time, VOTERS have drawn a line in the sand and said to the nation: ALL AMERICANS should have the FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOM to marry the person they love.

Election Results: Marriage Equality Wins!

From the American Foundation for Equal Rights: This election brought us an amazing victory. It’s the best outcome we could possibly have hoped for. Until now, our opponents have kept pointing out that they’ve won every popular vote on marriage. But not anymore. With sixteen national surveys showing a majority of Americans support the freedom to marry, their winning streak is at an end. Captioned video.

41 More States to Go!

As of November 7, 2012, nine states plus the District of Columbia have passed marriage equality laws:

1. Massachusetts – May 17, 2004

2. Connecticut – November 12, 2008

"It is about love. Love for all people. Love for humanity. Love for justice and equality for all. Love for basic human rights. Love for civil rights for all people. Thank you Maryland, Maine, Minnesota and Washington and, of course, thank you America for re-electing Obama."
--MJ Bienvenu

Victory in All Four States!

Victory in all four states! Love triumphed bigotry. Thank you allies, those who made monetary contributions and worked tirelessly on the state campaigns, those who spent time educating and informing others why marriage equality and LGBT civil rights matter and of course, those of you who voted yesterday.  We’re four steps closer to marriage equality for all Americans.

Google Supports Marriage Equality

This November, there are 4 states with marriage referendums on the ballot. Google employees show their support for marriage equality and urge you to add your voice, too. Closed Captioned.

First Person: Why I Oppose Minnesota’s Marriage Amendment

By Susan Masters

On Nov. 6, 2012, Minnesotans will vote on whether to change our state’s constitution to limit marriage to one man/one woman. As a Christian and Lutheran pastor, I strongly oppose this effort. This video is in ASL and offered for Minnesota’s deaf community to consider.
