“Today Is a Victory for Equality”


WASHINGTON, DC—Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) released the following statement today on the Supreme Court’s decisions in Hollingsworth v. Perry (California’s Proposition 8) and Windsor v. United States (Defense of Marriage Act).


“Today is a victory for equality. Barring LGBT Americans from marriage violates the values we hold dear—justice, freedom and equality. It makes no difference who someone loves and denying them the same rights as heterosexual couples is just plain wrong. Today’s decisions will make us a fairer and better nation.”
