Eleven Democratic state party chairs are urging the national party to make marriage equality part of the 2012 Democratic platform at the national convention in September. The group Freedom to Marry announced Thursday that the 11 chairs are endorsing their campaign to get the issue in the platform at the convention, called ”Democrats: Say I Do.”

The language of the “freedom to marry” plank calls for “the full inclusion of all families in the life of our nation, with equal respect, responsibilities and protections under the law, including the freedom to marry.”
