Barbara Lee Issues Statement on Marriage Equality

Written by  Rep. Barbara Lee | Press Release

Oakland, CA – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) provided the following statement concerning decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the issue of marriage equality.

“I am hopeful that the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the issue of marriage equality will move California and this nation one step closer to truly standing for equal rights for all.  Though this fight is far from over, I consider the Court’s decision to be an important victory for equality.

“As a founding member of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus, I have repeatedly spoken against the effort to ban same-sex marriage, and I will continue to fight until equal rights are enjoyed by all.”
