April 10, 2021
On April 11, 2001, seven courageous couples and GLAD made history when we filed Goodridge v. Department of Public Health. We invite you to celebrate this anniversary that was the first step toward marriage equality in Massachusetts and, eventually, the nation.
Watch our video commemorating the tenth anniversary of our victory in Massachusetts – Goodridge at 10.
We know that we can win enormous victories for LGBTQ justice, just like we did with marriage equality. Right now we have another chance to expand nondiscrimination protections by passing the Equality Act.
This critical legislation builds on the promise of the Civil Rights Act to cover more vulnerable Americans than ever before. Join us in the next crucial opportunity to expand discrimination protections for LGBTQ people, women, people of color, and people of minority faiths. Take action for your community and beyond:
- Contact your Senator and urge them to support the Equality Act
- Join us and other LGBTQ justice groups April 21 for a Virtual Lobby Day
- Host or join a phone bank or write a letter through the Equality Time Action Center
Thank you for your support as we work together toward justice and equality for all Americans. And thank you to the couples who put their lives and love in the spotlight to push our movement forward. Happy anniversary!
