Stand with the Official Democratic Party: Support Marriage Equality

This petition had 12,724 supporters

Just over a year ago, President Obama announced his support for marriage equality—a first for a sitting president. And during the Democratic National Convention last fall, Democrats became the first major party to endorse marriage equality in its platform.

We have a national inclusive hate crimes law, we have ended bias in the military, and in several states, employment discrimination is banned and all citizens are able to marry the person they love.

These milestones are significant and historic, but our work is far from complete. We need to fight until LGBT Americans gain full equality under the law.

Right now, marriage equality is being debated in the highest court of our nation, with a decision expected in the coming days. Now, more than ever, it’s time that our voices are heard because marriage equality isn’t about politics, it’s about people’s rights.

Stand with President Obama and the Official Democratic Party and say you support full equality for all Americans. Add your name.
