Success! Today Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico announced he would support the repeal of DOMA! And we couldn’t have done it without you.
More than 1,000 Courage Campaign members joined with Progress Now New Mexico and the Democracy for New Mexico blog to petition Senator Udall to co-sponsor the repeal of DOMA. Local community activists Noreen Richards and Bernadette Koh joined Cleve Jones to deliver the signatures to the senators’ staff in Albuquerque.
Then our activists in New Mexico posted more than 90 comments on Sen. Udall’s Facebook wall, urging him to co-sponsor that legislation. In his announcement, Sen. Udall called the repeal of DOMA “fair and in accordance with the Constitution and I’m proud to co-sponsor it.”
Check out his video announcement below:

Because of your efforts, and Senator Udall’s support, we are one step closer to repealing DOMA. Why not stop by the Senator’s Facebook page and say “thank you?
