A Message from the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The law school celebrates the bipartisan passage of the Respect for Marriage Act. This legislation, which marks a truly historic moment in the LGBTQ+ fight for equality, guarantees the federal rights, benefits, and obligations of marriages in the federal code for same-sex couples. It also repeals the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act, affirms that public acts, records, and proceedings should be recognized by all states, and recognizes the same rights for interracial couples. While we are encouraged by this victory, we also acknowledge that there is much more that needs to be done to ensure the full equality of the LGBTQ+ community. We stand in solidarity with our LGBTQ+ community and remain committed to advancing justice and working to achieve a fair and equitable society for all.
