April 29, 2011: Republican Ally, Madeline Koch, addresses the Minnesota Senate asking leaders to vote no on adding the marriage amendment to the ballot.
The need for equality and the full acceptance of GLBT people is something Minnesota’s next generation of leaders has already embraced… Never before has our constitution sought to treat people unequally.
…I’d ask that you not let me down as my representatives by putting your own personal beliefs and benefits in the way of equality. Please vote no on these bills.
Thanks, Madeline. You inspire me.
