Repeal the Dine' Marriage Act of 2005
This petition had 286 supporters
In 2005, the Navajo Nation Council reacted to pressure by President George W. Bush by passing the Dine' Marriage Act that prohibits same-sex unions on the largest Native Nation in the United States.
Today, for the last 10 years, the marriage act continues to divide our families and fails to treat couples in committed-relationships as equals. It is evident that the law is intrusive into personal lives and stands against everything we believe in as Navajo people. Core values like Hozho' - maintaining our harmony - and living with compassion & understanding.
By repealing the Dine' Marriage Act, all our families will finally be treated with fairness and respect by the Navajo government. With the freedom to marry who we choose and love, ending this discriminatory law will finally provide same-sex couples the protections, rights, & benefits marriage can only provide.
We call upon all Navajo leaders to introduce legislation to finally repeal the Dine' Marriage Act.
SIGN OUR PETITION - Stand on the right side of history.
