This is one of our intrepid Courage state coordinators for DOMA repeal — Joshua Loker, organizing in Texas — and he’s invited to attend Wednesday’s Pride month reception at the White House. Joshua has been doing great work organizing on the ground to educate the public and bring more Senators on to DOMA repeal, and this helps recognize that important work. Congrats to Josh.
We have now 75 coordinators in 46 states, volunteering several hours a month to organize on the ground for DOMA repeal. We can always use more! The reason that this is so important is that even though the number of couples in states with marriage equality has now doubled post-New York, they still have no access to over 1,100 federal rights because of DOMA. And that helps us build pressure to repeal this law. We now have 27 Senators onboard, and for a full list of them, check out the DOMA graphic on the right side of this blog near the top.
You can sign up here to volunteer for DOMA repeal, and a member of Courage’s field team will be in touch!
