Ask Senator Mikulski to cosponsor the Respect for Marriage Act

Hundreds of loving same-sex couples are legally wed in Maryland. Like all other families, these couples want to provide for their families and build a life together but are denied critical protections and security under federal law. Because of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), legally married same-sex couples in Maryland are treated as strangers by the federal government and denied over 1,000 protections that other married couples are afforded.

The Respect for Marriage Act has been introduced in the House and Senate, but your US Senator Barbara Mikulski has yet to sign on as a cosponsor.

Will you join Freedom to Marry, Equality Maryland, Courage Campaign, and thousands of fair-minded Marylanders in asking Senator Mikulski to cosponsor the bill that will repeal DOMA once and for all?

Fill in the information below to add your name to our open letter. We'll deliver it personally to Senator Mikulski's office.
