ACLU of Wyoming statement of support on marriage lawsuit, Courage v. Wyoming

Yesterday, four couples and Wyoming Equality filed the first-ever challenge to Wyoming’s laws on marriage in the case of Courage v. Wyoming. While we are not directly involved in this lawsuit, the ACLU of Wyoming stands in solidarity with Wyoming Equality and the plaintiffs who are arguing that current law violates the Wyoming’s Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection and due process.

Marriage is a unique, one-of-a-kind promise that represents love, commitment and responsibility, and the ACLU of Wyoming believes that LGBT people, like everyone else, should have the freedom to marry the person they love. The ACLU is proud to have been part of the LGBT rights movement since 1936 and we will continue to work alongside our partners until the freedom to marry exists in every state.
