#AM_Equality: A landmark step toward equality: HRC celebrates Senate passage of bipartisan Respect for Marriage Act

A LANDMARK STEP TOWARD EQUALITY: HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN CELEBRATES SENATE PASSAGE OF BIPARTISAN RESPECT FOR MARRIAGE ACT: “Today love won. This is a historic day, marking a much-needed victory for our community,” said HRC President Kelley Robinson (@KelleyJRobinson, she/her). “The fact that this bill passed with strong bipartisan support — earning the votes of 12 Republicans — again demonstrates that marriage equality enjoys growing bipartisan backing, is supported by a wide swath of the American people and is not going anywhere. We are closing this discriminatory chapter of our history — marriage equality is here to stay. And this is just the beginning — we have more work to do to fight with and for our transgender community, our BIPOC community, and our youngest community members with the same passion and energy that we brought to the fight for marriage equality.” More from the Associated Press, People, the Washington Post, Time, Bloomberg Law, and HRC.
