Understanding A Gay Marriage Amendment In Virginia

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
It’s Not Just About Marriage: Virginia Marriage Amendment Teach-In
The November ballot in Virginia has a proposed Constitutional Amendment that would go well beyond prohibiting same-sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships. It would also discriminate against unmarried couples (same- or opposite-sex), outlawing any other legal arrangements with marriage-like rights and benefits. The Amendment will become law if it is passed in November.
Come learn more about the far-reaching implications of the Amendment and steps that you can take to help defeat it.
