"Governor Huckabee has been a consistent leader and a strong voice for pro-family values in our country for years," said Brian Brown, NOM's President. "We are thrilled that he will be joining us for the March for Marriage, which promises to be a historic success. We have a great line-up for the rally, and the response from supporters around the country has been overwhelming and very positive."
In addition to Governor Huckabee, other speakers include Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage; New York State Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz; leading Evangelical Pastor Jim Garlow of Skyline Church in California; Ludovine de la Rochere, President of the French pro-marriage organization, La Manif pour Tous; Ryan T.

"Governor Huckabee will be joining leaders of dozens of pro-family organizations from the local, state, and national levels, standing in front of our nation's Capitol to proclaim that marriage is solely the union of one man and one woman," said Brown. "This is a value that Governor Huckabee shares with millions of Americans, and we plan to have many of them with us for the rally and march that day. We're going to show the media elites and those in public office that the American people still stand for marriage. We're going to show people around the nation—especially young people—that there's no reason for shame or cause for fear in standing up for this essential truth."
