To: William J. Clinton, Former President of the United States

Former President Clinton: Help repeal DOMA.

President Clinton: We ask that you publicly and actively join the effort to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act signed into law during your administration. By renouncing DOMA, you will add a powerful voice to this campaign for equal rights for LGBT people.

Why is this important?

As President, Bill Clinton signed the Defense of Marriage Act, putting discrimination against lesbians and gay men into federal law. DOMA is terrible public policy. The Obama administration has decided the act is unconstitutional and will no longer defend it in federal court. Sen. Dianne Feinstein has introduced legislation in Congress to repeal DOMA. What better advocate for repeal of this highly discriminatory law than the man who put it into effect? Let's ask former President Clinton to actively join the effort to repeal DOMA.
