AFSCME's Saunders on the Respect for Marriage Act: ‘Love wins’

AFSCME President Lee Saunders released the following statement after President Joe Biden signed the Respect for Marriage Act into law: 

“Fifty-five years after Loving v. Virginia and seven years after Obergefell v. Hodges, we can celebrate that marriage equality is now the law of the land. The Respect for Marriage Act guarantees that all couples – no matter their sex, race, ethnicity or national origin – can build their lives together without fear of having their rights stripped away. We thank President Biden and members of Congress who voted for this historic bill for ensuring that love wins.”
