New Ad: How the Freedom to Marry benefits ALL Iowans

One Iowa
April 22, 2009
Here's a message from One Iowa about the release of their new advertisement today in preparation for marriages for gay couples starting on Monday:

On Friday, April 3 the Iowa Supreme Court unanimously ruled in favor of marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples. Recognizing marriage for caring, committed gay and lesbian couples will continue a long-standing Iowa tradition of protecting all its citizens and treating each Iowan fairly.

We hope this ad will start a conversation with Iowans about the Supreme Court decision, which isn't just about gay and lesbian Iowans-it's about ALL Iowans. We know that marriage strengthens families and, as Iowans, we support committed couples who want to accept the responsibility that comes with marriage.

We invite you to view our ad and participate in a statewide conversation about marriage. Talk to your family, friends, and neighbors. Discuss what marriage means to you.
