Marriage Equality: We Did It.
The Manhattan Young Democrats applauds Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature for coming together to finally make marriage equality a reality for all loving couples. This long-awaited day would not have been possible without the thousands of New Yorkers – from all political stripes and from every corner of the state – who committed countless hours to this cause. Our collective canvassing, phonebanking and organizing in key districts since 2009 have paid off and today we can proudly say we live in a state where all couples are respected and treated equally under the law. Our sincerest congratulations to all who stood in support of marriage equality and made today's victory possible.
