AFM and CORE Announce Joint Partnership to Protect DOMA

"As our nation's first black President -- himself the victim of a fatherless home -- Barack Obama can do more through the power of example to strengthen the future of marriage for our children and grandchildren than anyone else, it's our goal to convince him." Niger Innis

The Alliance for Marriage Foundation and the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) today announced a joint partnership on the eve of CORE's annual Martin Luther King Holiday Celebration to protect the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in the upcoming 111th Congress.

"Our partnership with AFM will work to convince President Obama that rather than destroy marriage, he can be its great protector," said Niger Innis, National Spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality and an AFM Advisory Board Member.

CORE's first King Holiday Celebration was held in 1984, and has since grown to become one of the largest events in the country honoring Dr. King. This year's Celebration is being held one day before the Inauguration of President Barack Obama.

"As our nation's first black President -- himself the victim of a fatherless home -- Barack Obama can do more through the power of example to strengthen the future of marriage for our children and grandchildren than anyone else," said Innis. "It's our goal to convince him."

For years, the Alliance for Marriage Foundation has warned that the debate over marriage is really a struggle to protect the basic civil rights, because whenever marriage is redefined, the freedom of religion, association, and conscience are trampled upon in the name of a brave new social, cultural and legal norm that denies the importance of mothers and fathers for children.

"In California, over 70% of the African-American community rejected the redefinition of marriage," continued Innis. "That's because my community - perhaps more than any other - understands in very real terms the consequences of family breakdown. When marriage declines, children and society both suffer."

AFM's diverse coalition unveiled www.ProtectDOMA.org, a new online resource to protect the Defense of Marriage Act.
