Democrats: Thank you for including the freedom to marry in the party platform

    1. Sponsored by

      Freedom to Marry

Today is one for the history books. 

Just moments ago, the Democratic Party voted to support the freedom to marry as an official plank in the Party’s platform, its vision for America.  The Democrats are now on record as the first major political party in US history in favor of true and full equality for same-sex couples. 

More than 42,000 marriage supporters signed Freedom to Marry’s petition calling on the Democrats to add the freedom to marry to the party platform – and the Party listened. Now is the time for us to say “thank you.”

In the next 48 hours, let's show our appreciation to the Democrats for taking this courageous stand by getting 50,000 people to sign Freedom to Marry’s "thank you" card to leaders including President Obama and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

Sign our letter now thanking the Democratic Party for including the freedom to marry in the party platform.
