Prop. 8 Ruled Unconstitutional! Thank the Plaintiff Couples

    1. Sponsored by

      Human Rights Campaign

Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo. Kristin Perry and Sandy Stier. These two committed couples decided they would not be silent while Proposition 8 declared their relationships unworthy of a marriage license.

Their case went to federal court in California, and they won: the court declared Prop. 8 unconstitutional. It was an important step in the long struggle for marriage equality.

This case will likely be appealed and could make its way up to the U.S. Supreme Court. Let's show these couples our appreciation and give them strength for the battle ahead.
