GSE demands apology from NOM, stands with Clementi family

The following statement can be attributed to Troy Stevenson, Executive Director of Garden State Equality: 

“We stand with the Clementi Family in demanding an apology from the so-called National Organization for Marriage. For the past several years, we have worked to expose the mistruths and bigotry of NOM, which has been associated with designated ‘hate groups’ by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The recording of a NOM spokeswoman invoking the Clementi family’s personal tragedy to further NOM’s anti-gay agenda proves once more that NOM’s odious work knows no bounds.

“Garden State Equality’s own work to end the bullying of LGBT youth and non LGBT youth alike gives us first-hand knowledge that what young people in crisis need is not the ‘friendship’ of organizations that seek to deny them human dignity, but laws that ensure respect for all and a society that embraces every child equally.”
