Pallone Statement to Mark One Year Anniversary of Marriage Equality in New Jersey

Oct 21, 2014 Issues: Equality

Long Branch, NJ —Today, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) released the following statement on the one year anniversary of marriage equality in New Jersey:

“Today, we celebrate one year of marriage equality in New Jersey and offer a ‘Happy Anniversary’ to so many LGBT couples who were able to marry one year ago.  Though the fight for this equality was difficult, thanks to many leaders throughout our state, New Jersey continues to be a national leader on civil rights issues. 

“While today is certainly a moment to celebrate, there is much more work to do.  LGBT Americans continue to face discrimination in the workplace and in many communities around the country.  It is imperative that all Americans are able to enjoy the same rights, and that means putting an end to discrimination in all forms.”
