Academy Award-winning actor and activist Morgan Freeman narrates HRC‘s new marriage equality ad, “Dawn of a New Day for Marriage Equality,” which “vividly displays our movement’s momentum, and all that is at stake in the fight for full, nationwide marriage equality.”
Freeman, who supported President Obama in 2008 and narrated a 30-second spot titled “Challenges,” for Obama’s re-election in October, does not lightly lend his name to causes.
Featuring images of the Statue of Liberty, the Constitution, Martin Luther King, the Washington Monument and the open road, the short video could leave discouraged opponents of marriage equality without even a scrap of patriotic imagery to energize their struggling cause.
“Freedom, justice, and human dignity have always guided our journey for a more perfect union,” Freeman says in the ad. “With historic victories for marriage, we’ve delivered a mandate for full equality. The wind is at our back, but the journey has just begun.”
Is that HRC taking full credit for the marriage equality successes?
