Marriage equality: Is Virginia next?

Last year was an incredible year for marriage equality, as state after state—eight in all—embraced the freedom to marry. OFA volunteers led successful efforts to bring equality to Rhode Island, Minnesota, Illinois, Hawaii, New Jersey, New Mexico, California, and Delaware.

In 2014, a potential frontrunner in the march toward equal marriage is already emerging. In 2006 the Old Dominion amended its constitution to define marriage as being between a man and a woman only. But Virginia's new Attorney General Mark Herring recently announced that, instead of defending that discriminatory law, he is going to side with the plaintiffs in the case challenging the ban.

This is a big deal. You can help keep up the fight for marriage equality in Virginia and across the country. If marriage equality—or a lack thereof—in your state is affecting you or someone you know, OFA wants to hear from you.
