Georgia attorneys are standing up for marriage equality in a new campaign from Southerners for the Freedom to Marry in partnership with Georgia Equality. It’s called Georgia Lawyers for the Freedom to Marry and organizers say the list of signers include “prominent attorneys from communities across the state, including Atlanta, Augusta, Savannah and Athens.”

Georgia Lawyers for the Freedom to Marry is a pledge, already signed by 206 attorneys, that reads: “As proud members of Georgia’s legal community, we believe that allowing the freedom to marry for same-sex couples is crucial to fulfilling the promise of liberty and equality for all of Georgia’s residents. All Americans, regardless of whom they love, deserve to be treated equally under the law.”
