******************************************

(Austin, TX) Today Soulforce hails the Connecticut Supreme Court’s ruling that same-sex couples have the right to marry in Connecticut.

Statement from Soulforce Executive Director, Jeff Lutes:

"This momentous decision would not have been possible without the efforts of organizations such as GLAD (Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders) and Connecticut’s Love Makes a Family. Today we salute their work and celebrate all the Connecticut couples and families who will now enjoy the same fundamental freedoms and legal protections as their neighbors.

Soulforce remains dedicated to marriage equality for every couple in the United States, and we urge all Americans who value fairness and freedom to support the historic No on 8 campaign in California."

Soulforce is a national civil rights and social justice organization dedicated to freedom for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people from religious and political oppression through the practice of relentless nonviolent resistance.
