Happy Pride! Green Response to Supreme Court Decisions

After Wednesday's historic Supreme Court rulings legalizing same-sex marriage in CA, and overturning part of DOMA, the Green Party put out a press release praising the decisions.  But after this weekend's celebrations, there's still much work to be done, as New York Green Drew Langdon acknowledged:

We commit to continue the struggle because we understand that equality means more than marriage equality. The struggle continues, as we work to make full protections for our transgender siblings a reality. The struggle continues as we ensure that every LGBTQI person has enough food to eat, a roof over their heads, and the proper care for a healthy life. The struggle continues as we work to ensure the basic dignity and human rights that we all deserve.

The Green Shadow Cabinet also put out a statement responding to the Supreme Court's overturning of a key part of the Voting Rights Act.  Here are a few quotes from their full statement on the VRA:

The Supreme Court ruling removes the last remnants of protection for poor and minority voters and will openly invite new and creative ways to repress the most vulnerable people in our society.

What the Supreme Court should have done is expand the principles of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 into the emerging Jim Crow states of Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania.

The Green Party thinks we need far stronger protections than those that had been guaranteeed by the Voting Rights Act, including an acknowledgement of everybody's right to vote and have your vote counted, and fair access to run as a candidate.
