Today, President Obama declared his support for marriage equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans. The President joins a majority of Americans who believe that all committed and loving couples should have the opportunity to enjoy the protections that marriage offers to them and their families.
Statement from Alaskans Together For Equality:
“Today is a historic day for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community across the country. It is the first time that a sitting president has come out for marriage equality for all families. The majority of Americans believe in fairness toward their fellow citizens and so does President Obama. We hope that one day, a majority of Alaskans will realize the need to undue the 1998 constitutional amendment that prohibits marriage equality for all Alaskan families. Alaska is strongest when we support all our people fairly and equally. We are confident that day will come soon.”
Alaskans Together for Equality, Inc. is an educational and advocacy nonprofit organization incorporated in the State of Alaska. Its mission is to advance civil equality for all Alaskans through grassroots organizing and advocacy, with a primary focus on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Alaskans.
