February 21, 2013 by Maureen McCarty, HRC Associate Director of Digital Media
HRC President Chad Griffin was on Hardball with Chris Matthews last night to talk about the Respect for Marriage Coalition’s latest ad, along the bipartisan momentum for marriage equality.
Yesterday the Respect for Marriage Coalition, which is co-chaired by HRC and Freedom to Marry, released a national ad featuring President Obama, former Vice President Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, and Laura Bush – all voicing their support for the freedom of loving and committed same-sex couples to marry the person they love.
Watch the clip from MSNBC below.
The Respect for Marriage Coalition is a partnership of more than 80 civil rights, faith, health, labor, business, legal, LGBT, student, and women’s organizations working together to end the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act and grow support for marriage equality.
