DNC Chair Jaime Harrison, Secretary Jason Rae, and LGBTQ Caucus Chair Earl Fowlkes issued the following statement celebrating the passage of the landmark Respect for Marriage Act, which enshrines marriage equality protections into federal law:

“Love is love and the passage of the Respect for Marriage Act affirms our nation’s commitment to protecting marriage equality and the fundamental right for people to marry who they love. We applaud President Biden and congressional Democrats for taking this crucial step in codifying the rights of LGBTQ Americans and repealing the Defense of Marriage Act. As this legislation heads to President Biden’s desk to be signed, we commend the Democratic leaders and advocates within the LGBTQ community and our party who made this win for marriage equality and protecting every Americans’ freedom possible.”
