These leaders from across Colorado are joining together to move marriage forward, stating their commitment to equality for all compels them to publicly advocate for marriage equality.
They are standing on the right side of history. They know it’s a matter of when – not if – marriage equality will be achieved in the Centennial State.
Former Speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives, Terrance Carroll, spoke to why he supports the freedom to marry:
Here in Colorado, we continue to fight for full equality for all people. Gay and lesbian Coloradans are part of our families and our community – they are our sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, cousins, aunts and uncles. Many more are our friends, neighbors and co-workers. Marriage gives committed couples the tools and security to build a life together and protect their families, and no one should be denied that fundamental freedom.
Denver Public School Board member Rosemary Rodriguez also spoke on behalf of valuing all families in our state:
Through my work on the Denver Public School Board, I have met many same-sex couples and their families who are impacted every day by their inability to marry in our state. Parents have expressed the need to protect their children – and without marriage, they do not have access to these protections. It is my duty as a community leader to advocate for these families.
