You Can File a Supreme Court Brief in Marriage Cases

You Can File a Supreme Court Brief in Marriage Cases February 16, 2015

The Human Rights Campaign is offering a unique opportunity, the chance to have your name on a brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in the Michigan case challenging state bans on same-sex marriage. They’re calling it The People’s Brief and you can have your name attached to it.

This week, HRC launched an historic effort to give every American a chance to share their support of marriage equality with the Supreme Court of the United States.

By signing onto The People’s Brief, your name will go down in history, and on this landmark document, as a supporter of marriage equality.

Already, thousands of Americans, including soccer star Robbie Rogers, Mayor Cory Booker and Iron Chef Cat Cora, have stood in support of marriage equality for same-sex couples nationwide. Sign The People’s Brief now.

I think that’s pretty cool. I’ve had my name on legal briefs before, but not in such a historic case. And I love this quote from Justice Kennedy’s ruling in Lawrence v Texas:

Times can blind us to certain truths. Later generations can see that laws once thought necessary and proper in fact only serve to oppress.

Looking forward to reading similar things in this ruling at the end of June.
