MILWAUKEE – Jonathan Brostoff, candidate for the 19th Assembly District, released the following statement on today’s overturning of Wisconsin’s ban on same-sex marriage:
“I am proud of today’s decision that ends the ban that has kept LGBT couples from legally expressing their love for one another. Wisconsin has finally joined the wave of states across the country who have maintained the freedom to marry. My own brother, Jacob, was recently married to his husband because of the overturning of the ban in Oregon. I hope the ruling is maintained, as our state must never stand in the way of love.
We must also remember that our LGBT community continues to face many complex challenges. I spent many years working at the homeless shelter Pathfinders and witnessed too many LGBT young men and women kicked out from their homes and families because of their sexual orientation. We must celebrate today but continue to work together tomorrow to ensure no one can be discriminated because of who they love.
Today’s announcement can be the beginning of a new progressive era in Wisconsin. We need to work hard to elect more progressive legislators that will push forward the inclusive, accepting policies our needs. Let’s get to work to create a truly accepting and tolerant future for all.”
