The GluckWalrath Government Relations department is pleased and humbled to be working with our newest client, Garden State Equality to renew the push for Marriage Equality in New Jersey. Michael Gluck and Ryan M. Jones will be working with the organization to develop legislation, formulate strategy, and distribute a unified message throughout the State to pursue equality for all couples irrelevant of sex or sexual orientation.
From the Garden State Equality site:
"With more than 125,000 members, Garden State Equality is the state’s largest civil rights organization of any kind – not just the state’s largest organization advocating for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality."
We anticipate the United States Supreme Court ruling U.S. v. Windsor, addressing the constitutionality of Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act and are prepared to work with all elected officials in order to ensure that no one in New Jersey is denied 1,138 Federal benefits solely based upon the person they love. GluckWalrath is excited to be partnering on such an important civil rights issue.
