By Dave Montez, Executive Director of One Colorado
It’s a big day for Colorado.
Today, One Colorado will proudly stand on the steps of the Capitol alongside our coalition partners to launch Why Marriage Matters Colorado, the campaign that will move marriage forward here in Colorado.
Our position is simple: No loving couple in our state should be denied the protections and respect only marriage can provide. And we believe Coloradans are ready for a conversation about why marriage matters to all families.
In Colorado, our constitution bans marriage for loving gay and lesbian couples. We have two paths available to do away with this harmful amendment and extend marriage to all Colorado families: amending the constitution by a vote of the people, or winning in the courts. With your support, we’re committed to pursuing both paths simultaneously.
That’s why we’re launching this campaign today – to build the public support we need to make Colorado a state where all families are valued and protected.
In the coming weeks and months, we’ll build grassroots power like Colorado has never seen before – and we’ll be laser-focused on telling the stories of loving same-sex couples who want to marry in the state we all call home.
With you and tens of thousands of One Colorado supporters fueling this campaign, the freedom to marry in Colorado isn’t a matter of if – it’s a matter of when.
Thanks for standing with us!
