The marriage discrimination amendment is not going to help a single family… But denying gay couples and their children 515 legal protections, rights and responsibilities harms Minnesotans. And those are Minnesotans that we know — our neighbors, our friends, our co-workers, our family members.

Werner shared his views at the Freedom Walk for All Families in Rochester as part of Rochester Pridefest. Attracting 120 people, Vangie Castro - chairwoman of Gay Lesbian Community Services of Rochester - shares why the event was put together:
We just want to let Rochester and southeast Minnesota know these families are here, we exist, and we need the same rights and respect and support in the community as any other family.
Thanks to everyone that continues to spread the “vote no” message across this great state.
