I am proud to be a representative of the first state to legalize same-sex marriage, and I was honored to stand with LGBT leaders as the Supreme Court issued its landmark decision reversing Obergefell v. Hodges, legalizing same-sex marriage throughout the nation.
I believe the fight for LGBT rights is the civil rights fight of our generation, and I am thrilled by this recent victory. Despite these advances, there remain many other discriminatory practices that should be addressed. As a member of the Equality Caucus, I am working with colleagues to implement reforms that would ensure greater equality in our schools and in the workplace. I recently joined several of my colleagues in writing a letter to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan that commends the Department of Education for its work to address the bullying of LGBT youth while encouraging the agency to issue a final guidance outlining the obligations to protect LGBT students from discrimination.
There is much work to be done, but I am proud that the recent Supreme Court decision has made our nation a little bit more equal and free. I am continuing my work to advance the rights of all people, including those in the LGBT community.
