United for Marriage Equality
If you like it, you should [be able to] put a ring on it. I’m paraphrasing Beyoncé here, but you get the point.
Marriage is a milestone that allows couples to share their love for one another among friends and family. But it’s not an option for everyone – because of legislation like the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Proposition 8 (Prop 8 ) that prohibit marriage for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
Recent surveys suggest that as many as 75% of Millennials support same sex marriage. And with the Supreme Court preparing to hear oral arguments on two marriage equality cases next week, I want to make sure you have a chance to make your voice heard on the issue too.
Join us for the United for Marriage Rally outside of the Supreme Court on Tuesday, March 26th and Wednesday, the 27th.
- so we know you’re coming and can bring you a poster and a red t-shirt to wear. (We’re wearing red as a celebration of love!). Can’t make it to the rally, but want to do more? Click here to let us know you’re interested in the marriage equality issue, and we’ll keep you on the list for future updates.
This public show of support for marriage equality will demonstrate our shared belief that all Americans deserve to be treated fairly and equally under the law – no matter who they love.
