Passing The Respect For Marriage Act

By Charlotte Robinson, July 29, 2022

It’s time to protect Marriage Equality from the biased rightwing US Supreme Court bobbleheads & pass the Respect for Marriage Act (RMA). It’s now in the hands of the US Senate after passing in the House of Representatives & our LGBTQ community has worked too hard & too long to have our federal marriage rights & protections at risk by radically conservative Supreme Court Justices. Kierra P. Johnson, Executive Director National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund stated, “This window of opportunity to protect marriage equality through federal legislation is the result of right-wing justices on Supreme Court using their powers to again take away constitutional rights already decided and enjoyed by millions. Too many are suffering & at risk because of the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade, where the threat to marriage equality by our high court was named & as we know, we have been battling a wave of anti-trans & anti-LGBTQ legislation in the states. And biggest threat is this: widespread efforts by right-wing zealots take away our constitutional rights and undermine our Democracy.” Overturning our right to legally marry the person we love & to protect our families would only be the beginning. None of the hard-fought rights that we have won in the courts are safe including the right to work or to be recognized as the legal parents of our children. Let’s make sure we all vote in November & return some sanity to this country which will include finally passing the Equality Act. Call your Senators & let's get this done.
