Virginia is INDEED for Lovers

Friends,

Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional! We were so happy to hear this decision from the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday.

We wanted to carve some of the words from the majority opinion in stone – here was the Beyer campaign office favorite: 

“The choice of whether and whom to marry is an intensely personal decision that alters the course of an individual’s life. Denying same-sex couples this choice prohibits them from participating fully in our society, which is precisely the type of segregation that the Fourteenth Amendment cannot countenance.”

The momentum is moving – finally – in the direction of equality. And we have to work together to keep it going.

Virginia is for Lovers, but we have make sure it is for ALL Lovers!

Don is committed to making sure that our Commonwealth, and our entire country, affirm the right to marriage for any committed couple. Thank you for all you are doing to help us get Don to the House, where we need his progressive voice and his leadership in the fight for true equality.

What a great day to be in Virginia!

Thank you,
Team Beyer
