VICTORY! Supreme Court Rules on Proposition 8

The AFER teams celebrates the Supreme Court ruling that overturned Proposition 8, restoring the freedom to marry in California.

The American Foundation for Equal Rights is dedicated to protecting and advancing equal rights for every American.

As the sole sponsor of the federal court challenge of California’s Proposition 8, now known as Hollingsworth v Perry, AFER is leading the fight for marriage equality and equality under the law for every American.

AFER has assembled a legal team led by Theodore Olson and David Boies to demonstrate that Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution by denying
millions of people equal protection under the law.
