This past February, fair-minded Texans from across the state rejoiced when a federal judge struck down a constitutional amendment banning same-sex couples from marriage in the Lone Star State. But Texas Governor Rick Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott have insisted on aggressively defending marriage discrimination by appealing the ruling to the United States Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit.

We know that even one more day is just too long for same-sex couples and their families to wait for the freedom to marry. It's time for all Texans to join together and tell Gov. Perry and AG Abbott that their appeal of the freedom to marry is hurting families each and every day.

Thousands of Texans are joining Equality Texas and Freedom to Marry in calling on Gov. Perry and AG Abbott to drop their defense of the state’s marriage ban. Sign the petition urging them to let this year's historic marriage ruling stand, and we'll hand-deliver your signature.

By signing this petition, you will receive updates from Equality Texas and Freedom to Marry about the campaign to win marriage in Texas and nationwide.
