Target: U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle
Goal: Thank Judge Hinkle for legalizing gay marriage in the state of Florida by ruling that a ban is unconstitutional
For many years, residents of Florida have fought for equality by attempting to end the ban on gay marriage. Now, with the constant efforts of activists all around the nation, including petitions from ForceChange, this ban has become a reality. Recently, U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle ruled that any ban on gay marriage is considered unconstitutional and re-established equality for many people.
The gay rights movement for change and justice has been rapid. With the addition of Florida, gay marriage is now legal in 36 states. Many hope that the momentum moves throughout the rest of the nation so that gay marriage can be legal nationwide. Already, the Supreme Court is meeting to make decisions on whether action should be taken to make gay marriage legal throughout the nation.
Florida’s decision is a huge step towards equality for all. Everyone deserves justice and no one should be denied the right to marry based on their sexual orientation. Please help us in thanking Judge Hinkle for his decision to lift the ban on gay marriage and reinstate equality to the state of Florida.
Dear Judge Hinkle,
The people of our nation fight tirelessly to ensure equality for everyone. Whether it is race, socioeconomic background, or gender, equality is sought out by all. An especially important topic in recent days is that concerning gay marriage. Much of the country has determined banning gay marriage to be unfair and many fight to reverse laws preventing it.
I would like to thank you for decision to overturn the ban on gay marriage in the state of Florida. Deeming it unconstitutional sends an important message to the rest of the nation. Your decision is imperative to the current momentum of the gay rights movement. Ideally, the remaining 16 states that still consider gay marriage to be illegal will follow in your footsteps to reverse this decision.
Thank you again for restoring equality to the state of Florida. Your honorable decision and great actions have granted many people opportunities that have previously been denied to them. You have set a model for other states to follow and I’m sure your decision will be an important step towards allowing gay marriage nationwide.
[Your Name Here]
