Join the nation-wide Mayors for the Freedom to Marry effort

    1. Andrew Picard
    2. Petition by

      Andrew Picard

      Hanford, CA

More than 150 mayors from across the country have joined the Mayors for the Freedom to Marry Coalition because they realize real change happens at a local level.

Unfortunately, Mayor Sue Sorensen isn't listed. We must bring this issue to our leaders, our schools, our businesses and our community!

As a proud resident of Hanford, I would like to know that my mayor and my city leaders support equal rights for all.

Currently, civil unions and domestic partnerships do not give same-sex couples the equal benefits that heterosexual couples receive.

LOVE is one issue that all can stand united upon. The strength and health of our cities are enhanced when all citizens are equally protected and supported. Many loving and committed same-sex couples are active participants in improving our communities, and they deserve to know their mayor supports them, too.

It is simply the right thing to do.

Please urge Mayor Sue Sorensen to sign on to join the Mayors for the Freedom Coalition by signing this petition and sharing it with your friends, families and neighbors.
