Entertainment Tonight was there and put together this video of stars discussing the influence of PFAWF founder Norman Lear and the importance of People For the American Way Foundation’s work:
The Huffington Post was also there and filed this report. Among the speakers at the event was Lynch, who spoke about the importance of PFAW Foundation’s work on marriage equality:
Lynch spoke of her marriage to her wife, Lara Embry, in 2010 in Massachusetts. On equality for all, she said to the room, "You have been fighting for me, and I thank you. This is a topic that is particularly important to me. Last time I checked, same-sex marriage has not ruined anyone else’s marriage."
