Marriage equality strengthens families, brings stability and validity to the children of same sex couples, and ties our communities together. I encourage those on the other side of the aisle to get behind this pro-family legislation. Our kids deserve to grow up feeling valued, and LGBT families deserve to be protected under the law.
This proposed constitutional amendment is about guaranteeing that every Wisconsinite has the freedom and liberty to love who they love. This bill will ensure that no Wisconsinite has privileges and rights that are denied to others. I am resolved to be a vocal champion for equality in our state until it is the law of the land.
Currently, 17 states have legalized same sex marriage and an October 2013 Marquette poll showed that a majority of Wisconsinites now support same-sex marriage.
