NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Mayor Karl Dean joined Thursday Mayors for the Freedom to Marry, a bipartisan group of mayors who support marriage equality at all levels of government. In joining them, he signed the group’s Freedom to Marry statement and released this statement:
"I believe that all people should be treated fairly and equally and that their individual dignity should be respected. Embracing and celebrating our growing diversity makes our city stronger. Nashville needs to continue in that direction, and it’s my hope that joining this effort will help us do that."
