President Diann Woodard’s Statement on DOMA

AFSA applauds the U.S. Supreme Court for ruling the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Prop. 8 ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. The Labor Movement has a long history of fighting for equality under the law. And, although today’s rulings should be celebrated, we must realize there is far more work to be done to reach full equality for all. As a nation, we must continue working together for the rights of all people, be it voting rights, marriage equality, health care access, or continuing the fight to end employment discrimination.
