To the Members of the Democratic Party:
Thank you for standing with the majority of Americans who support marriage for same-sex couples by including the freedom to marry as a plank in the Democratic Party 2012 platform.
As we know, marriage strengthens families, communities, and our country. It says "we are family" in a way that nothing else does.
By including the freedom to marry plank in your platform, you are showing that you support the full inclusion of all families in the life of our nation, with equal respect and protection under law.
Thank you again for supporting the freedom to marry.
