Urban League's Morial to Officials Resisting Marriage Equality: "We Are Better Than This"

NEW YORK (June 30, 2015) -- National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial today called on jurisdictions resisting marriage equality to comply with the Supreme Court's decision and treat all couples with equal dignity.
 
"Sadly, I am reminded of Alabama Gov. George Wallace standing in the schoolhouse door in his misguided and futile attempt to stop desegregation," Morial said. "I am certain history will remember these officials who resist marriage equality in much the same light."
