Tell the President and Congress: Dump DOMA!

It's time for some real change we can believe in.

It's time for the federal government to stop punishing loving same-sex couples.

It's time to repeal DOMA -- the Defense of Marriage Act.

It’s becoming clear that the walls excluding LGBT Americans from equality under the law are coming tumbling down. The Judges and state legislatures who have come down on the side of equality are doing their jobs -- now Congress and the President need to do theirs.

Take action today to urge President Obama and Congress to eliminate DOMA.

It's time to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). At this moment of change and progress, it's time to undo a serious mistake made by Congress 14 years ago.

The federal government has no business discriminating against loving families by selectively withholding the roughly 1,300 legal protections that only legal civil marriage affords.

It's time for the President to fulfill his promise to the American people to eliminate DOMA. And it's time for Congress to show leadership on this issue and send him long overdue legislation to repeal this relic of hatred.
