Support Continues To Grow For Freedom To Marry


The number of mayors from across the country who have pledged to support marriage equality via the Mayors For the Freedom To Marry campaign has now reached 141.

Among the additions are Charles Lombardi of North Providence, R.I.; Claire Fortier of South Lake Tahoe, Calif.; Gayle McLaughlin of Richmond, Calif.; and Satyendra Singh Huja of Charlottesville, Va.

Huja is the first mayor to sign on from the state of Virginia.

The campaign already enjoys the support of mayors of the five largest cities in the U.S.: Michael Bloomberg of New York, Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles, Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, Annise Parker of Houston, and Michael Nutter of Philadelphia.

According to its website, "Mayors for the Freedom to Marry is a broad-based and nonpartisan group of mayors who believe that all people should be able to share in the love and commitment of marriage."
