PROP 8 VICTORY!
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has just ruled that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional! We knew all along that Prop 8 was wrong, and this ruling affirms what millions of people all across the country already know — loving, committed same-sex couples and their families should be able to share in the celebration and obligations of marriage.
This is a huge victory in the battle for marriage equality, but this fight is far from over.
The federal government still refuses to recognize our families. The so-called Defense of Marriage Act remains the law of the land, and thousands of loving families are denied the protections, rights, and responsibilities that other married couples take for granted.
The Obama Administration has refused to defend DOMA. It’s time for Congress to repeal it.
Take Action now: Tell your senators to pass the Respect for Marriage Act and repeal DOMA.
Let’s use this historic ruling as a catalyst in our fight for equality, and demand that the federal government recognize our relationships.
