U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., campaigns for marriage equality in a video for the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBT civil rights group.

The video is part of HRC’s Americans for Marriage Equality series.

In the video, Moore says, “I’ve always fought for equality and justice in America, which is why I think it’s wrong to tell two people in love they can’t get married, just because they’re gay or lesbian.” 

Moore represents Wisconsin’s 4th District. She’s served the district since 2005, when she became the first African-American elected from the state to Congress.

On HRC’s Congressional Scorecard, Moore rates a 100 percent. For comparison, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., rates a zero.

HRC president Chad Griffin says, “Rep. Moore is a great ally, and an incredible voice for LGBT equality in Congress. We are proud to count her as a friend and advocate in our fight for marriage equality nationwide, and we’re grateful for her steadfast support for our community in the House of Representatives.”

Others to make videos for the series include Bryan Cranston, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Melissa Harris-Perry, fun.’s Jack Antonoff, Krysten Ritter, Dreama Walker, Stanley Tucci, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman, Cybill Shepherd, Kristen Bell, Jason Mraz, Rossana Rosado, the Rev.
