Urge Mayors Across the Country to Join the Fight for Marriage Equality

    1. Sponsored by

      Freedom to Marry

Cities and their mayors have long played a critical role in advancing civil rights and equal treatment for all Americans. A bipartisan group of over 130 mayors have already pledged to support the freedom of same-sex couples to marry.

Mayors who sign on will employ tailored strategies for making the case for the freedom to marry in their communities. Many mayors who represent cities in states where marriage is not yet a reality will advocate to pass laws to secure the freedom to marry. Others will make the case to their congressional representatives to end federal marriage discrimination by repealing the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). All are making a statement as to why marriage matters in their communities, how it improves the quality of life for their constituents, and how it makes their communities economically stronger.

We are asking mayors from across the country to join Mayors for the Freedom to Marry to help “ build an America where all people can share in the love and commitment of marriage with the person with whom they share their life.”

Pledge your support by calling on mayors across the country to help build an America where all people can share in the love and commitment of marriage.

      I love my mayor, Menino, The longest-serving mayor Boston has ever had; he has been re-elected time & time again because he truly supports Bostonians & strives to increase our quality of life. I encourage leaders of all communities to follow his example.
