Earlier today I reported that more than 70 mayors from across the United States have released a joint statement supporting marriage equality in a new campaign called Mayors for the Freedom to Marry.

Here's a highlight reel, and a longer video of their press conference today.

Read their statement and see a list of the mayors who have signed on in my earlier post.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

And here's the longer clip, from Michael Lavers at Boy in Bushwick.

  8. It is simply the right thing to do and it is the best thing to do for our society. To hold any other view is small thinking and damaging to our cities, states and our country. Our President does know this, but he has to win one more national election.
