STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT BIDEN SIGNING RESPECT FOR MARRIAGE ACT FROM BBT EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR DANIELLE MELFI
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Building Back Together Executive Director Danielle Melfi released the following statement after President Biden signed legislation to protect same-sex and interracial marriage:
“The historic and long overdue legislation President Biden signed today affirms that all Americans have the right to marry the person they love – and ensures millions of families across the country are protected equally under the law. President Biden has long been a champion of fundamental rights and freedoms, including marriage equality, and has been a vocal supporter of this legislation.
“This bipartisan victory would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of advocates and allies over decades. This moment is for them, and for the millions of young LGBTQI+ Americans who will grow up in the years to come with greater rights and protections.”
