Fair Wisconsin is thrilled to share with you some exciting news from the Equality Federation, the national coalition of state-based LGBT advocacy organizations of which Fair Wisconsin is a proud member. So often we share with you what is happening right here in the Badger State, such as domestic partnership protections, the legal challenge or our local events; however, LGBT advocacy on the national front is just as crucial to securing legal protections for same-sex couples.

This week, our very own Representative Tammy Baldwin, along with Representative Jerrod Nadler of New York, introduced the Respect for Marriage Act in the United States House of Representatives. This bill will repeal the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and ensure that legal marriages of all couples are recognized by the federal government.

Take action! Ask your Representative to cosponsor the Respect for Marriage Act! We need your help to persuade all members of Congress that this bill is critical for families across our country.

Please contact your member of Congress today and ask him or her to cosponsor The Respect for Marriage Act of 2009.

In Fairness,

Katie Belanger

Executive Director, Fair Wisconsin
