Democratic Party of Georgia Chair Issues Statement in Honor of Atlanta Pride
Atlanta, GA – Today, Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter issued the following statement in honor of Atlanta Pride.
“This week, we celebrate the contributions made by the LGBT community and just how far we have come as a nation on LGBT rights. While our state has miles to go before we sleep, know that state Democratic lawmakers will continue to work toward a Georgia that treats all its citizens equally under the law.
“I’m proud that our Party has led the fight against the discrimination of all people—regardless of who they love. That’s one of the many reasons why I will be marching with Georgia Democrats and the DPG staff in this Sunday’s Pride parade.
“We have plenty of reasons to celebrate, but that does not mean we should be satisfied. We cannot stop until all men and women—who are created equally—are treated equally.”
