      New Jersey United for Marriage

All across New Jersey, committed same-sex couples are doing the hard work of building strong families, and yet they’re denied the protection and security that only marriage can provide.

All loving couples in New Jersey should be able to share in the freedom to marry -- so that they can take care of the ones they love, through tough times and good times, in sickness and in health.

Add your voice to the growing number of New Jerseyans who believe in marriage for all loving couples. Take the pledge now: commit your support to winning marriage for all New Jersey families!

I am a New Jerseyan who believes in marriage for all loving and committed couples. I believe that committed same-sex couples should be allowed to share in the freedom to marry. I pledge to work to enable same-sex couples and their families to share equally in the responsibilities, protections, and commitment of marriage.

      It's pretty disappointing that the colony states are still trying to work out the whole 'equality' thing. Out of all fifty states, I would've thought that the ones who took part in freedom from British rule would've been first in line for true freedom and equality.

      Transgender people are banned from joining the military. Sign this petition to help get the ball rolling: https://www.change.org/petitions/united-states-military-lift-the-ban-on-transgender-people-in-the-military and like the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/transmilitary We need as many people as possible to support this cause in order to show the government this is an important cause. "Don't ask don't tell" isn't over yet. The military still discriminates against transgender people. Don't ask don't tell only affected sexual orientation. Gender Dysphoria is now the classification in the DSW medical book so the military has no reason to discriminate based on the fact that a mental health diagnosis can prevent transgender people from serving in the military. Unfortunately, at this time they can prevent transgender people from serving in the United Stated military. Add transgender people the the repeal of don't ask, don't tell. Let equal rights and safety for all transgender people be possible! Don't ask, don't tell needs to be repealed for all, including transgender individuals. All transgender people deserve the same rights as every other United States citizen serving the country. Be that serving openly in the military, marrying the person they love or just walking down the street without risking being beaten or killed just because we live our lives differently than thinks is the "proper" way.

      Here are some articles about it: The New DADT: The Military's Ban on Transgender Service: http://outservemag.com/2012/01/the-new-dadt-the-militarys-ban-on-transgender-service/ and http://www.theatlantic.com/sexes/archive/2012/10/for-transgendered-soldiers-dont-ask-dont-tell-carries-on/264225/

      My dad always dreamed of me joining the Coast Guard. As a kid, like passing by, he'd be like "[Jason], that’s the Coast Guard. They pay for school and its fun." So, it stuck. Passing by the Coast Guard with my dad was just as important as going to a nature walk with him, because he was concerned about my future, and those times I’ll never forget. Please sign the petition to help his dream and mine for other transgender people come true.
