Evan Wolfson answers the question: Is the Freedom to Marry Inevitable?
January 18, 2011
In a speech marking Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at the University of Michigan Law School, Freedom to Marry Executive Director Evan Wolfson pulled lessons from Dr. King's battles for equality and applied them to today's fight to end marriage discrimination.
Wolfson answered the question of inevitability, "Yes, maybe – if you want it in 50 years. But if the question is, can we make it happen now, in 5 years, the answer is, yes – if we each make a personal commitment and join the collective effort to do the work, to have the conversations, to make the case."
