This week, the Supreme Court will hear two cases regarding marriage equality. The first challenges the legality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and the second challenges Proposition 8 in California. In hearing these cases the Supreme Court will have an opportunity to determine whether or not our nation has the courage to carry out the true meaning of our creed of all being created equal. Add your name to the list of thousands of Young Democrats from across the country who support marriage equality for all Americans.
So, in the end for Barack, these issues are not political. They’re personal. Because Barack knows what it means when a family struggles. He knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. Barack knows the American dream because he’s lived it. And he wants everyone in this country, everyone to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we are from or what we look like or who we love.
