In 2008, PFAW started a campaign to repeal the discriminatory so-called "Defense of Marriage Act." Yesterday, that campaign got a major boost.
President Obama yesterday ordered the Department of Justice to stop defending DOMA in court on the grounds that it is unconstitutional. And following the announcement, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said that she would introduce legislation to repeal the law. This is nothing short of huge.
Join our campaign to Dump DOMA by telling leaders in Washington to REPEAL this discriminatory law.
President Obama opposes DOMA and has long acknowledged its discriminatory nature, but the explicit acknowledgement that it is unconstitutional and the decision not to defend the law signals a new era for the federal government's legal treatment of same-sex couples and the LGBT community as a whole.
Please sign the petition and then help spread the word.
