Daniel Williams, ACLU of New Mexico on

 

 

a public education campaign to raise visibility and start a conversation about why gay and lesbian couples should be treated fairly. 

 

the majority of Americans … support fairness in marriage.

… most gay and lesbian people treasure marriage for the same reasons any person does. They want to establish and protect a family, make a lifetime commitment in the same way other couples are able to, and to have that special commitment recognized and respected by their government.

…. No member of anyone’s family, gay or straight, should have to face discrimination because of who they are or who they love.

Rev. Dr. Lee Albertson

Retired United Church of Christ minister,
