Rep. Gwen Moore of Wisconsin joins HRC ‘Americans for Marriage Equality’ campaignOnline Only, Top Highlights Thursday, August 23rd, 2012
WASHINGTON – The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has released a video ad featuring U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore of Wisconsin for its Americans for Marriage Equality campaign. In the video, Congresswoman Moore states, “I’ve always fought for equality and justice in America, which is why I think it’s wrong to tell two people in love they can’t get married, just because they’re gay or lesbian.” The video can be viewed online at www.hrc.org/marriageequality.
Congresswoman Gwen Moore represents Wisconsin’s 4th District in the U.S. House of Representatives, serving since 2005, and is the first African American to represent the state in Congress. Rep. Moore scored a 100 percent on HRC’s Congressional Scorecard for the 112th Congress and is a co-sponsor of a number of pro-LGBT equality bills, including the Respect for Marriage Act (RMA) and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). She has also been a vocal supporter of including LGBT-specific provisions in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
“Rep. Moore is a great ally, and an incredible voice for LGBT equality in Congress,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “We are proud to count her as a friend and advocate in our fight for marriage equality nationwide, and we’re grateful for her steadfast support for our community in the House of Representatives.”
