On Friday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) announced that he intends to bring the Respect for Marriage Act, a bill that would repeal the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), before his committee for a vote in November.
Even as more states move to expand marriage equality to their same-sex couples, these couples are still prevented from partaking in many of the most basic benefits of marriage because the federal government won't recognize their unions as legal.
Please take a moment to add your name to PFAW's petitionurging Congress to Dump DOMA and end this unconstitutional, discriminatory policy once and for all.
