The Respect for Marriage Act

Across religious traditions, we honor the common tenet that every person has inherent dignity and worth. And wherever we call home, we share the desire to care for our families with love and commitment. The freedom to marry who one loves is a matter of human dignity. Yet the ability for two people to join together in shared devotion is at risk as long as it remains dependent on the current Supreme Court.
