Today, our campaign got another BIG boost. DuPont, an iconic Delaware company, just endorsed marriage equality.
"Our support of marriage equality shows our employees and the community that our commitment to respect for people and equality extends beyond our walls. Our inclusiveness is what allows us to develop and grow, and it reinforces our position as a leading employer."
-Benito Cachinero-Sanchez, Sr. Vice President - Human Resources
DuPont's support is historic. It’s not every day that a Fortune 100 company and one of our state’s largest employers takes a stand on a critical issue impacting thousands of Delaware families.
"DuPont is fully committed for the benefit of our employees and the community to working with Equality Delaware to support a marriage equality bill when it is introduced in the General Assembly this year.”
-Lydia Mallett, Human Resources Director – Organizational Vibrancy
This endorsement shows our legislators -- who will consider extending the freedom to marry to all couples this legislative session -- that marriage equality is good for families, good for business, and good for Delaware.
DuPont now joins our growing, broad-based coalition, which includes the Delaware NAACP, four major labor unions, and elected officials like Attorney General Beau Biden and Governor Jack Markell.
