LULAC Comes Out For Gay Marriage

By Charlotte Robinson, July 01, 2012
The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) passed a resolution at their 83rd Annual Convention in favor of gay marriage. The resolution supports marriage equality for all Americans, including our LGBT community. This resolution opposes the denial of basic civil rights or acts of discrimination against any American, as is consistent with LULAC's continuing advocacy for civil rights & protections guaranteed by the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. "Today the LULAC National Membership reaffirmed its commitment to equality for all by voting in favor of marriage equality," said Jesse Garcia, LULAC member & co-founder of the organization's first LGBT Council. "LULAC stands with great Latino leaders like Dolores Huerta, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis who believe discrimination of same-gender couples should not be tolerated. This is a historic day for LGBT Latinos everywhere, plus this vote is another bond that reaffirms the partnership between the LGBT & Hispanic communities." LULAC supported Obama's statement in favor of marriage equality for same-gender couples & has several LGBT Councils. LULAC Executive Director, Brent Wilkes stated, "Since its inception, LULAC has fought for the equality of minorities. All individuals, regardless of their race, ethnicity, country of origin or sexual orientation, deserve equal rights. Everyone should be granted the freedom to marry their partner be protected under the same laws that are established for heterosexual couples."
