Civil rights icon Julian Bond and the Human Rights Campaign this week released a video featuring Bond in the “Americans for Marriage Equality” series, calling for same-sex couples to have the right to marry.
The HRC calls the series a public engagement campaign.
“The issue of marriage equality is at a critical time as it moves through electoral, legislative and judicial arenas,” reads the HRC website.
Bond, the former head of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), has advocated on behalf of LGBT issues in recent years and has spoken out against anti-gay churches and pastors, particularly in the African-American community. He served for 20 years in the Georgia General Assembly.
“I know a little something about fighting for what's right and just,” Bond says in the 30-second video clip. “Gay and lesbian couples have the same value as everyone else. They should have the same right to marry as the rest of us.”
Bond joins actress Mo'Nique and Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker as participants in the series.
