Petitioners ask Governor to Stop Supporting Same-Sex Marriage Bans

More than 1,200 Alaskans have signed a petition asking Governor Walker to withdraw Alaska’s support for an amicus brief defending same-sex marriage bans.

The attorney general signed the brief two weeks ago. The NAACP, Christians for Equality, and Alaskans Together for Equality all signed the petition.

Comments support equality for all citizens. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments about the constitutionality of such bans on April 28. They’ll issue a final decision by this summer.
