Equality For All New Jerseyans

February 17, 2012

To The Editor:

I am pleased with the February 7 Ninth Circuit ruling on Proposition 8 in California. I offer my congratulations to those who worked so hard to make this a reality today.

The American Foundation for Equal Rights and its legal team worked diligently to correct this injustice and this week’s victory renews in us the belief that the American system of justice can address such mistakes.

Here in New Jersey we have heard our own Supreme Court rule that marriage equality is the right of state residents. I am proud that the leadership in Trenton now is urging the governor and other legislative members to accept responsibility and achieve equality for all New Jerseyans.

I, too, strongly urge them to eliminate the second-class citizen status created under the N.J. Civil Union law.”
