New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg addressed the passage of Amendment One head on in his commencement speech at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill yesterday.
Said Bloomberg: “Each and every generation has removed some barrier to full participation in the American dream. That work is not over. Far from it…And, I would argue, last week's referendum banning same-sex marriage shows just how much more work needs to be done to ensure freedom and equality for all people….I have no doubt, that in your lifetime, liberty’s light will allow us to see more clearly the truth of our nation’s founding principles, and allow us to see all people and all couples as full and equal members of the American family.”
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP…
