Virginia Organizing Chairperson Sandra A. Cook issued the following statement on behalf of the organization after the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality today.
“Virginia Organizing rejoices today with same-sex couples who will finally have the same rights to marriage as heterosexual couples. Virginia Organizing firmly believes that no person should be discriminated against because of his or her sexual orientation or gender identity. Today’s decision by the highest court in our nation shows that the United States will no longer support this form of discrimination. Congratulations to all the couples waiting for this decision and celebrating today!”
