Repeal the Bigotted and Discriminatory "Defense of Marriage Act"
Repeal the Bigotted and Discriminatory "Defense of Marriage Act"

DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act, represents bigotry and discrimination against millions of Americans who want the same rights the rest of us cherish. We don’t need to wait for a study. We don’t need to read a poll. We know right from wrong. And we know it’s time for DOMA to go.

Passed in 1996, DOMA:

  • enshrined into US law the discriminatory notion that marriage is only between a man and a woman
  • said that states that don’t allow marriage equality don’t have to recognize same sex marriages from other states
  • denies loving married couples over 1,000 legal rights and privileges that straight couples enjoy.

On February 23, 2011, the Obama administration determined that Section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional and announced they would not defend it in court.  But Republican leaders have stepped in with a plan to waste precious time and resources defending the hateful law in court.

What To Do

Fill out these three quick and simple internet petitions to show your support of this repeal.  Because every American should be able to marry the person they love.
