Over 300,000 Thank President Obama For Marriage Equality Support

When President Obama announced his support for marriage equality two weeks ago, many organizations invited supporters to join in expressing thanks for his evolution. Yesterday, these organizations combined their more than 300,000 signatures and presented a thank-you card to the administration, which was accepted by White House LGBT Liaison and Associate Director of Public Engagement Gautam Raghavan. GetEQUAL also gave a gift of 300 pens to make sure the President would have one to sign an executive order protecting the LGBT employees of federal contractors from discrimination.
