Washington, DC – Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) issued the following statement on today’s Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality. The court’s ruling gives same-sex couples the right to marry in all fifty states.

“Our nation is stronger today because of this historic ruling. Both society and the law must value the lives of others and treat every person with respect and dignity regardless of who they are, what they look like, or who they love. I celebrate this victory with the LGBT community and with members of my own family whose love now knows no boundaries,” said Congressman DeSaulnier.
