National Coalition Responds To Supreme Court Ruling on Same-Sex Marriage

"The National Coalition of Black Civic Participation applauds the U. S. Supreme Court's 5:4 decision to makes same-sex marriage is the law of the land." said of Melanie Campbell president & CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation.

NCBCP , the a coalition that represents some 60 organizations and state-based affiliates and networks ,was one of the first civil rights organizations to support the movement to make same-sex marriage a constitutional right.

"By declaring that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States, the Supreme Court has helped break the unjust barriers for the LGBT community and for American civil rights. Now and for future generations the right to love is a fundamental and constitutional right for all people." Campbell added.

The National Coalition, founded in 1976, creates and enlightens communities by building institutional capacity that provides and develops leadership. By educating, motivating, organizing, and mobilizing Black communities, the National Coalition seeks to encourage full participation in a barrier-free democratic process. The National Coalition works to expand, strengthen, and empower communities to make voting and civic participation a cultural responsibility and tradition. The Black Women's Roundtable (BWR) serves as the women and girls empowerment arm of The National Coalition. BWR promotes health and wellness, economic security and sustainability, education and global empowerment.
