Making history at the Supreme Court

This week, the Supreme Court hears two cases in which the stakes couldn’t be higher.  The question: Who can get married?

The late Dr. Thea Spyer and Edith Windsor
AFJ is playing a lead role in the fight for marriage equality.

Today: We’re asking you to show your support for marriage equality by signing our “thank-you card” to Edith Windsor who, at age 83 has taken her challenge to the so-called defense of Marriage Act all the way to the Supreme Court.

Tomorrow and Wednesday: Join us outside the Supreme Court for rallies in support of marriage equality.  And if you’re not in Washington, take part in one of more than 160 events across the country.

Tomorrow: As the Supreme Court hears Hollingsworth v. Perry, a challenge to California’s Proposition 8, we’ll analyze the oral arguments – using excerpts from Supreme Court audio.  It’s all part of our new AFJ Audio Analysis project.  Click here Tuesday afternoon to become an “ear-witness to history.”  And check back here at Justice Watch for additional commentary from leading legal scholars.

Wednesday: AFJ President Nan Aron speaks at the rally outside the Supreme Court supporting marriage equality.  We’ll have video at www.afj.org

Wednesday: Our Audio Analysis project continues with analysis of the arguments in United States v. Windsor, the case challenging DOMA.
