Washington, D.C. – The Rainey Center Freedom Project is proud to celebrate the latest progress towards ultimate passage of the bipartisan Respect for Marriage Act. Today’s Senate vote in support of marriage equality brings this landmark legislation closer to the President’s desk.
This legislation will ensure that marriage equality remains the law of the land and that the right to marry who you love is protected by law, along with the freedom of religious institutions as protected by the First Amendment.
“The Respect for Marriage Act is long overdue and we look forward to this legislation ultimately being enacted. This legislation will give peace of mind to same-sex couples and ensure their dignity and equality before the law. We applaud the Democrats and Republicans who came together today to protect both American families and religious liberty,” said Rainey Center Freedom Project President Sarah Hunt.
The Rainey Center Freedom Project is a 501 (c)4 that is the advocacy partner of the Joseph Rainey Center for Public Policy, a public policy research organization and leadership community advancing freedom, equality, and a more perfect union where the American dream is for everyone.
