Momentum for marriage equality continues full force! Today, the Supreme Court ruled to allow all the circuit court decisions stand that struck down the marriage bans in five states: Virginia, Indiana, Utah, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin. That’s 5 more states where same-sex couples will be able to get married! Thanks and kudos to Lambda Legal and the legal teams behind these amazing victories.
API Equality-LA celebrates with our allies today’s ruling; the impact on our communities will be amazing. API communities are among the fastest-growing in the nation, with Wisconsin and Virginia seeing 47% and 71% API population growth according to the last census. Thousands more couples will be able to have their relationships recognized and will no longer be denied the federal protections that marriage confers.
