Biss celebrates Supreme Court ruling for marriage equality


“This moment arrived because of the tireless work of generations of activists and community leaders who took great risks to fight for justice”

SPRINGFIELD — State Senator Daniel Biss (D-Evanston) issued the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic ruling this morning in Obergefell v. Hodges:

Today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of equality, making it legal for all couples to marry across the country. This moment arrived because of the tireless work of generations of activists and community leaders who took great risks to fight for justice.

I am thrilled to join in the celebration of love, equality and the long march toward justice that has defined the greatest moments of our nation's history.
