La Raza Endorses Marriage Equality

Following the lead of the NAACP, the nation's largest civil rights group for Latinos has unanimously endorsed marriage equality.
Former NCLR Board Chair Danny Ortega, a Phoenix lawyer whose term ended after the vote, provided broad details of the conversations that he said took place among the 25 board members before the vote. “We had a discussion about this and clearly some people had more questions than others, but at the end of the discussion it was unanimous,” he said. The resolution passed less than a month after the National Association for the Advancement of Colored Persons’ Board of Directors endorsed marriage rights for same-sex couples.
