Caroline Kennedy on Thursday became the 100,000th signer on Freedom to Marry’s Open Letter urging President Barack Obama to support marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples.

“Falling in love, getting married, and building a family is part of the American dream,” said Kennedy. “I believe that all Americans, including committed gay and lesbian couples, should have the opportunity to pursue that dream.”

Freedom to Marry’s “Say I Do” campaign was launched on March 14 with an Open Letter to the President signed by prominent Americans, including civil rights leaders, Hollywood celebrities, musicians, and business leaders.

Since then, 100,000 Americans have joined the campaign and signed on to the letter calling on the President to join “the majority of Americans who support the freedom to marry.”

“We’re honored that Caroline Kennedy has signed on to Freedom to Marry’s ‘Say I Do’ campaign,” said Sean Eldridge, Political Director of Freedom to Marry.

“A growing chorus of voices is calling on the President to complete his journey and join the majority of Americans who support the freedom to marry,” said Eldridge.

The full text of the Open Letter is here.
