Photos: Humanists Rally for Marriage Equality in Washington DC

 

The American Humanist Association joined thousands at a rally outside the Supreme Court last week as oral arguments were heard in cases challenging the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8. The AHA’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center submitted amicus briefs in each case, U.S. v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry, on behalf of seven other humanist and secular organizations.

For decades, the American Humanist Association has advocated for the rights of LGBT Americans. In 2009, the AHA created the LGBT Humanist Council to provide a forum for LGBT humanists and allies to support marriage equality, benefits for same-sex partners in the military, and other important issues to the LGBT community. The AHA is also a member of several coalitions supporting marriage equality, including United for Marriage, the Respect for Marriage Coalition, and LGBT Lobbyists.
