Tell President Obama: Please Don’t Appeal Massachusetts DOMA Decision

9 Jul

DOMA is wrong. It’s that simple. So:

I just signed on to a letter from the Courage Campaign to President Obama asking him to not appeal a decision that gave us a major victory in the fight for equality for LGBT Americans.

On Thursday, a federal judge in Massachusetts ruled that part of the “Defense of Marriage Act” is unconstitutional — meaning that the federal government can no longer withhold recognition of same-sex marriages performed in states where such marriages are legal. It’s a major victory for equality. Now we need to make sure that President Obama preserves that victory by not appealing it.

Will you join me in signing this letter to President Obama? Just click on the link below to add your name:
