Among them is the head of the Democratic Party, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Rep. Joe Baca of California: “We’ve got to make sure that we vote no because we believe in equality, and we believe that everybody should have a choice.  That’s what our Constitution requires and what we, the people of the United States, affirmed when we aimed to form a more perfect union, establish justice and promote equality.”

Rep. Jim McGovern of Massachusetts: “I’m Congressman Jim McGovern and I’m happy to be a part of this campaign. I believe we need to work together to create a more tolerant, equal society.”

Rep. Janice Hahn of California:  “I believe marriage equality is a civil rights issue. Love deserves celebrating, not shaming, and no one should feel harassed or unsafe because of who they are. I am proud to stand with NOH8 on the side of love.”

Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Illinois:  “I’m so proud to be part of the NOH8 effort.  I think this education campaign is really going to help raise awareness and stop hate.”
