Victory in Virginia – Marriage Equality

Victory in Virginia – Marriage Equality

The Federal District Court ruled that Virginia’s marriage ban violates the U.S. Constitution. It said that loving couples like our plaintiffs, Tim Bostic & Tony London and Carol Schall & Mary Townley are entitled to the same basic rights and protections as every other American.

This is a monumental victory—for Virginia and our country—and the first of its kind for a state in the South.

While the decision will not go into effect immediately—it has been stayed pending appeal—this is a great cause for celebration.

What You Can Do

Help defend this win in federal court by making a donation today.
The anti-equality legal group Alliance Defending Freedom—which worked to get Prop. 8 on the ballot in California and defend it in court— is representing the defendant-intervenor in our case and will try to get this decision overturned. We can’t let them win.
