Richmond, Va.—Virginia Organizing State Governing Board Vice-Chairperson Del McWhorter responded to today’s Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling that struck down Virginia and other states’ bans on same-sex marriage:
“Today is a great victory for equality and justice in Virginia. A major obstacle for families has been overcome because of this decision. While we know this ruling could be appealed, Virginia Organizing is hopeful and confident that marriage equality, including the financial and legal equality that entails, will be realized in the near future.”
