Target: Carleton College

Petition Background (Preamble):

This petition is intended to urge Carleton College to take an official and public stance opposing an amendment to the Minnesota constitution that would ban gay marriage.

For more information on the proposed constitutional amendment, and to add support to the cause, please visit mnunited.org.

Petition:

We, the undersigned alumni and friends of Carleton College, call on Carleton College to take an official and public stance opposing the proposed amendment to the Minnesota constitution. The proposed amendment would limit the status of marriage to opposite sex couples.

We believe that this issue is one of civil and human rights and respect, not simply a matter of political opinion. Carleton has a long standing commitment to maintaining a LGBT-friendly community. Carleton should continue supporting LGBT individuals, by publicly opposing the proposed constitutional amendment.

We support those Minnesotans and Americans who want the same rights, freedoms, opportunity, respect, dignity, legal protections and legal opportunities as every other one of their fellow citizens.
