Sign the petition: Now is the time to ensure marriage equality – in EVERY U.S. state
While a narrow majority of Supreme Court justices in 2015 decided the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage, the Court’s conservative supermajority in June reversed a nearly 50-year precedent that relied on a similar legal theory to overturn a federal right to abortion. In response, the U.S. House passed the Respect for Marriage Act and codified the right to same-sex marriage – along with interracial marriage, which also isn’t explicitly protected by the Constitution.
Now, the Senate must do the same – full marriage equality must be protected under federal law. The freedom to marry the person you love is a fundamental right that a vast majority of Americans support. It is up to our leaders to ensure our right to marriage is legal, codified, and PERMANENT – across the nation.
Lawmakers have returned to the U.S. Capitol with a busy agenda for the “lame duck” period before a new Congressional session begins in January. With Republicans projected to take over the House in the new year, now is the time to enshrine rights. Join us in demanding the protection for full marriage equality – federally, nationwide.
