Stop DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act)!

This is the most crucial time to share concerns with our State Senators about DOMA and ask for their support in the DOMA Repeal.

What would change, and what must change, is the Federal Government’s unequal treatment of state-approved marriages. All married couples deserve the same clarity, fairness, and security under our Federal law. The time has come for the Federal Government to recognize that all married couples deserve the same legal protections.

DOMA is denying tens of thousands of legally married lesbian and gay couples more than 1,100 federal protections they deserve. These federal protections include Social Security suvivors' benefits, family and medical leave, equal compensation as federal employees, and immigration rights (deportations), among others.

Can we count on your support?
