Statement from the DPVA on Marriage Equality 10/6/14

The Supreme Court today denied a writ of certiorati in the case that overturned Virginia’s ban on gay marriages, making marriage equality finallylegal for all Virginians. The Democratic Party of Virginia issued the following statement from Margaret Sacra, Chair of the LGBT Democrats of Virginia caucus:


“Today marks a historic milestone as the Supreme Court paves the way for marriage equality for all Virginians. I’m proud that what started with the 4th Circuit Court decision, featuring eight Virginians who stood up for equal rights, will now become the law of the land in the Commonwealth. We can finally say that Virginia is open and welcoming to all, no matter who you love, and we applaud this major step forward in the fight for an equal society for all Americans.”
