Who defines marriage – the state or the nation?

Molly McKay, Media Director, Marriage Equality USA
Jennifer Morse, President and Founder, Ruth Institute at the National Organization for Marriage
Therese Stewart, Chief Deputy City Attorney, San Francisco; Attorney for the plaintiffs in current court case challenging Prop. 8

Six years ago, the eyes of the nation were focused on San Francisco when Mayor Gavin Newsom granted almost 4,000 same-sex couples marriage licenses. But the battle was far from over. With the passage of Proposition 8 in 2008, only marriage between a man and a woman is recognized in California; this year, after numerous protests, lawsuits and campaigns, San Francisco's Federal District Court will decide the constitutional validity of the law. Our panel of experts will take a closer look at how individual states and the federal government are battling it out.
