AFTER DOMA:
WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU

Dear ACLU supporter,

Last month, the ACLU of Nevada celebrated with ACLU client Edie Windsor and Americans across the nation when the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Our country’s highest court ruled that the federal government cannot discriminate against married same-sex couples by denying them federal benefits and protections.

This historic ruling is monumental for our country, but what does it mean for married gay and lesbian couples who live in Nevada, which still has a discriminatory definition of marriage? What federal benefits are available to married gay and lesbian couples? Learn what the end of DOMA means for Nevadans.

Nevada’s constitution prohibits same-gender couples from marrying in the state, but the ACLU of Nevada remains committed to fighting to ensure that all loving and committed couples in Nevada can marry. This year’s legislative session, we fought successfully for SJR 13, to define marriage to include all loving couples. But to become law, this resolution must pass the 2015 legislature and then be voted on by the public in 2016.

Because all couples do not yet have the freedom to marry in Nevada, many questions remain about how the DOMA ruling may affect you, your friends and your family. Learn what the end of DOMA means for you.

Thank you for standing with the ACLU in this historic victory and as we continue our fight for the freedom of all Nevadans to marry. It is the support, determination, and hard work of ACLU supporters like you that makes the change we all seek possible.

In Liberty and Equality,

ACLU of Nevada
