Nancy Brinker Statement on U.S. Senate Passage of the Respect for Marriage Act


November 29, 2022

“I have long said that the ability to marry, raise a family and build a life with the person you love is one of the most fundamental rights that exists. This evening’s historic vote in support of the Respect for Marriage Act (RMA) the United States Senate is an affirmation of this fact. The RMA protects religious liberty while also solidifying the unique and extraordinary importance of marriage on an individual and societal level. I am proud of the effort put forth by members of both parties to secure the indispensable freedom to marry for all Americans.”
