In a new ad that was featured during the elections in which three states voted to have same sex marriage (Maine, Maryland, and Washington), the movement for marriage equality continues by having Morgan Freeman’s legendary voice as a spokesman. In the new TV ad, Freeman echoes how the rest of the country needs to embark on the journey to equality:
“Dawn of a New Day for Marriage Equality, Freedom, justice and human dignity have always guided our journey toward a more perfect union. Now, across our country, we are standing together for the right of gay and lesbian Americans to marry the person they love. With historic victories for marriage, we’ve delivered a mandate for full equality.”
Chad Griffin, Human Rights Campaign president had this to say of Freeman’s new ad:
“As we continue the march toward full equality in legislatures and the courts, it is crystal clear that the prospect of an equal future is no longer up for debate; the question now is how soon it will arrive, While we celebrate today, we will keep fighting until full equality has reached every single person in every corner of this vast country.”
I hope that HRC along with the numerous organizations that helped make our recent wins continue to see success on our journey to equality.
