It is vitally important for the strength of society that all citizens have equal rights under the law.  All loving, committed couples should have the freedom to marry, and all families deserve equal rights and protections.

We believe that equal rights for all couples and all families strengthen the family unit, the fabric of society, and that this can be seen in the low divorce rates among states in our union that have already granted these equal rights and protections to all couples and families.

We affirm that the Equal Protection Clause in the Fourteenth Amendment should apply to all people regardless of gender or orientation, and to all children regardless of the gender or orientation of their parents.

We know that Utah will economically benefit enormously from allowing same-sex couples to marry, recognizing marriages performed out of state, and passing statewide nondiscrimination ordinances.

We celebrate liberty and the freedom of self-determination.

Letter to
Utah Attorney General John Swallow
We, the undersigned, affirm that all committed couples should have the freedom to marry, and that all families deserve equal rights and protections under the law.

We believe that equal rights for all couples and all families strengthen the family unit, the fabric of society, and that this is demonstrated in the low divorce rates among states in our union that have already granted these equal rights and protections to all couples and families.


We affirm that the Equal Protection Clause in the Fourteenth Amendment should apply to all people regardless of gender or orientation, and to all children regardless of the gender or orientation of their parents.

We recognize history in other states shows that Utah will enjoy enormous economic benefit by allowing same-sex couples to marry, recognizing marriages performed out of state, and passing statewide nondiscrimination ordinances.

We celebrate liberty and the freedom of self-determination.

We ask that you consider how your actions today will be viewed by future generations, and to please reconsider your position on the matter of marriage equality before the Supreme Court of the United States.
