Burlington, VT – Today on the heels of President Obama’s announcement of his support for Marriage Equality for all Americans, Democracy for America (DFA) released the following statement praising the President’s evolution.
"President Obama's public support for marriage equality is an historic affirmation of the fundamental American value of equal rights for all,” said Governor Howard Dean, Founder of DFA. 
"Having signed the nation's first law allowing Civil Unions as Governor of Vermont, I'm also proud to see our president affirm the belief that I and so many other Americans hold: loving and committed couples should have the same benefits that are extended through marriage.  Marriage equality is a right and a benefit to all families.”


Jim Dean, Chair of Democracy for America, echoed Governor Dean’s support of the President:
Jim Dean: “30 years from now we’ll look back on this moment as monumental.  With a simple statement from our President, ‘I think same sex couples should be able to get married,’ he broke political barriers and essentially said discrimination against loving and committed same sex couples is wrong.   
As chair of an organization who has helped support marriage equality initiatives across the country, I applaud his support and look to the Democratic Party to fully support marriage equality and to end discrimination against our LGBT community.”
