CSPG’s Poster of the Week refers to two historic cases about Marriage Equality being argued before the U.S. Supreme Court this week.  The two cases (United States v. Windsor;  Perry v. Schwarzenegger) challenge the constitutionality of the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8.  Both DOMA, signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996, and Proposition 8, passed in 2008, stipulate that marriage is only between a man and a woman, denying same sex couples the same rights and benefits of their heterosexual counterparts.
