Statement on the proposed inclusion of Marriage Equality to the DNC platform
The Young Democrats of America is proud to have long advocated for the inclusion of marriage equality in the platform of the Democratic National Committee. Polling shows that as a generation, both young Democrats and young Republicans have long understood that equality is a fundamental cornerstone of the greatness of America and this addition is one step forward for our nation as a whole. We are proud to have fought for this inclusion as well as the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and we will continue to stand in solidarity with all Americans who believe that our country is strongest when we stand behind and fight for our founding ideals, that in this nation, all are created equal and endowed by their creator life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
