The Latino Action Network [LAN] today announced its support for the Marriage Equality and Religious Exemption Act and urged quick passage by the State Legislature.
“We congratulate the State Senate for passing the legislation on Monday and urge the Assembly to do the same tomorrow,” said Frank Argote-Freyre, President of the Latino Action Network. “Marriage Equality is an important civil rights issue and we believe it is long overdue in the state of New Jersey.”
The members of the Latino Action Network believe that all people deserve equal rights under the law. The rights that are available to one group of people should be available to all people. These rights should extend to marriage. The right to marry the person you love should be available to everyone."There should not be a double standard for same sex couples," added Argote-Freyre.
The Latino Action Network was founded in 2009 to fight for political empowerment and defend civil rights.
