DOMA is unconstitutional, Prop 8 is struck down

Today the US Supreme Court ruled the so-called Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and struck down California’s Proposition 8. These are enormous victories and a joyous day for loving couples and their families, and for equal justice under the law. Today the Supreme Court affirmed that all loving and committed couples who marry deserve equal legal respect and treatment.

These decisions have added momentum for marriage, and PLAN will continue to lead the fight for Marriage Equality in Nevada by seeing to it that Senate Joint Resolution 13 is successful. The Nevada Legislature must approve the Resolution again in 2015 because it makes it to the ballot in November of 2016.

This is an incredible chance to move marriage forward for the Silver State. Thousands of families are depending on us.
