President Obama added his voice to the growing chorus of Americans who believe that all loving and committed couples should share equally in the freedom to marry. He now becomes the first sitting President to join the majority of Americans whose hearts have opened and minds have changed.
Join us in thanking President Obama for taking this historic step forward.
Add your name to our thank you letter:
Dear Mr. President,
Thank you for so powerfully voicing your belief that all loving and committed couples should share equally in the freedom to marry. Your description of how you came to your position illustrates the importance of talking from the heart about why marriage matters, thinking about real families, including lesbian and gay couples and our loved ones, and staying true to values of fairness and our national commitment to freedom and equality.
You have shown your commitment to end marriage discrimination by endorsing the Respect for Marriage Act, speaking out against anti-gay attacks, and by speaking publicly about your journey – including your conversations with Mrs. Obama and your daughters – to embrace the freedom to marry.
Thank you for your leadership.
Evan Wolfson and thousands of Freedom to Marry supporters
