Take Action

Tell Texas Republicans that you support the freedom of every Texan to marry:

Please defend the freedom of every Texan to marry the person they love!

The future of our state is strengthened when all families are protected by the security marriage affords. Texans across the state are in loving and committed same-sex relationships. These couples and families deserve the opportunity to build a secure life together.

I am asking you to support the freedom to marry in Texas.

Background

The Supreme Court will issue a historic ruling this month that could guarantee the freedom to marry to all Americans. If favorable, this decision would give gay and lesbian couples across the country—including Texas—the freedom to marry the person they love.

In 2005, 13.5% of Texans passed a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality in Texas. Since then Texas Republicans—from Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton to virtually every GOP State Representative and Senator—have fought to keep this marriage ban on the books.

Texas one of only 13 states where marriage is still banned, yet polling shows that more Texans support same-sex marriage than oppose. In addition to preventing many Texans from participating in the ultimate expression of love and commitment, this marriage ban endangers the security of many Texas families.

Loving Texan couples and their families have waited long enough. If the Supreme Court rules in favor of marriage equality, Republican state officials must be told to move swiftly on implementing this ruling.
