#Love Wins – ADL Resources on Marriage Equality

  • June 29, 2015


On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States of America ruled that the Constitution guarantees a nationwide right to same-sex marriage. This historic decision represents a long sought victory for the LGBT rights movement and for a myriad of civil rights organizations including the Anti-Defamation League. ADL’s amicus (friend of the court) brief in the landmark Obergefell v. Hodges case, filed on behalf of a broad, diverse group of religiously affiliated organizations, was prepared by Greenberg Traurig LLP.

This historic moment provides an excellent opportunity to talk with others, including young people, about marriage equality, LGBT people in history and literature, homophobia/heterosexism and the struggle for equal rights.

Below are educational and civil rights resources to help educators, parents and family members discuss the topic with young people.
