From the office of Congresswoman Frederica Wilson:
Congresswoman Frederica Wilson is a steadfast advocate for the LGBT community and views LGBT rights as a civil right battle of our time. She is a Congressional co-sponsor of both the bill to repeal DOMA and the Uniting Families Act and has been recognized by Human Rights Campaign and SAVE Dade as a strong supporter of marriage equality.
Congresswoman Frederica Wilson supports the Supreme Court amicus brief arguing for immediate invalidation of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Due to a technical error, Congresswoman Wilson and other offices did not have the opportunity to sign the brief prior to its release last week. As a firm opponent of DOMA, she has formally requested to be added to the list of signatories of the brief.
