Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

Our letter supports a campaign by Daily KOS asking Senator Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to bring the “Respect for Marriage Act” to the floor for a vote.

The following organizations support this bill: the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the National Education Association, the Campaign for Southern Equality, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, PFLAG, the ACLU, and other civil rights organizations.

We will send your email message to Senator Schumer
.

The “Respect for Marriage Act” ensures that married same-sex and interracial couples enjoy the same legal protections as other married people.

The legislation does not require any state to allow same-sex couples to marry.  But it does require all states to recognize marriages that are valid in the states where they took place, and it preserves state and federal benefits for these marriages.

This legislation is critically important now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade and broken a tradition of recognizing established law.

Discrimination against same-sex and interracial couples is wrong. It damages individuals and their families. It violates American values of equality and fairness.

Please bring this legislation to the floor as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
