Rock the Vote Statement On Supreme Court Decision in U.S. vs. Windsor and Perry vs. Hollingsworth

Washington, DC - June 26, 2013

Below is Rock the Vote President Heather Smith's response to the Supreme Court’s decision in U.S. vs. Windsor and Perry vs. Hollingsworth.

"Earlier today, in a historic move by the Supreme Court of the United States, they ruled to return marriage equality to California and to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act therefore providing equal justice under the law for millions of Americans.

Today’s decisions are a sign of momentous progress in the fight for equal rights for all. While we understand there is still more work to be done, and barriers to break down, today we celebrate this victory alongside the Millennial Generation and their overwhelming support for same sex marriage."
