On July 20th, congressional hearings begin on the process to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. Joe Solmonese and the HRC are scheduled to testify, as well as some couples desiring to urge Congress to bring marriage equality to all LGBT citizens. However, no people of color nor binational couples are slated to be represented and that is an outrage.
The issue of separation and deportation directly impacts thousands of LGBT couples and it is imperative that we include their powerful testimony in this important debate. Tell HRC: Reject white privilege and diversify our representation!
