HRC Statement on the Federal Recognition of Marriages Between Gay & Lesbian Couples In Michigan

March 27, 2014
Filed under: Federal Advocacy, Marriage

“The Department of Justice under Attorney General Eric Holder has been a remarkable leader in the fight for equal recognition of marriage for lesbian and gay couples.  Their decision to recognize marriages performed in Utah during the period when gay couples were granted licenses was legally sound and morally right.  The Human Rights Campaign has encouraged the Department to apply the same principles to the Michigan marriages that happened recently and we have every reason to believe that they will continue being champions of the LGBT community.”

The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
