GMHC salutes the NAACP for their strong endorsement of marriage equality
by Marjorie Hill, PhD, Chief Executive Officer
GMHC salutes the NAACP for their strong endorsement of marriage equality. The NAACP, one of the leading voices for social justice and equality for all Americans, will help bring the message of equal treatment to even more people--helping transform our country into one that is more just. NAACP President Ben Jealous and their Board of Directors are to be commended, as well as leading NAACP members Julian Bond and Congressman John Lewis.
In the words of Coretta Scott King, "Freedom and justice cannot be parceled out in pieces to suit political convenience. I don't believe you can stand for freedom for one group of people and deny it to others."
GMHC is proud to stand with the NAACP in our united commitment for marriage equality.
On May 19, the NAACP's Board of Directors voted to support marriage equality.
