Equality Texas Releases Statement from CEO Ricardo Martinez on Attorney General’s Refusal to Do His Job
Austin, Texas – January 30, 2020- Equality Texas, the largest statewide organization solely dedicated to securing full equality for LGBTQ Texans, today released a statement from CEO Ricardo Martinez on the attorney general’s refusal to do his job.
“One of the milestones most everyone dreams about is getting married. We all have a right to realize that dream without worrying about facing discrimination. Judges and clerks should do their job, follow the law, and issue marriage licenses without discrimination. Likewise, Ken Paxton should do his job, follow the law and defend state agencies’ ability to reign in rogue judges who are choosing to defy the law despite their oath to serve all Texans.”
Equality Texas is the largest statewide organization working to secure full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Texans through political action, education, community organizing, and collaboration. The Equality Texas Foundation works to secure full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Texans through education, community organizing, and collaboration.
