A Statement from NCLR Legal Director Shannon Minter
(San Francisco, CA, February 7, 2007) — This year marks the third anniversary of what the world has come to recognize as a profound moment in civil rights: the marriage of more than 4,000 same-sex couples in San Francisco. Although those marriages were later voided, the visible humanity and devotion of the couples wasn't.
Now, as we head to the highest court in the state, the National Center for Lesbian Rights is honored to be representing our community and the principles of freedom fairness for all in this historic case.
The National Center for Lesbian Rights is a national legal organization committed to advancing the civil and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their families through litigation, public policy advocacy, and public education.
