Sen. Vincent Fort Releases Statement on Gay Marriage Ruling

ATLANTA (June 26, 2015)  |  Sen. Vincent Fort (D- Atlanta) has released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage:

“I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision in the Obergefell v. Hodges case.  The Court’s  decision on gay marriage is a victory not just for the LGBT community but for all Americans who believe in justice. When some of us become more free, we all become more free. The decision overturns the 2004 Georgia constitutional Amendment banning gay marriage.  No longer will Georgians be prevented from participating in the most important expression of love and commitment that our society has.”
