Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“The City of Chicago applauds and celebrates today’s historic decision by the United States Supreme Court. By ruling that every American has a right to marry whomever they love regardless of where they live, today marks one of the great civil rights victories of our time. It is a victory for America’s true values of treating everyone equally under the law.  I want to thank every resident of the City of Chicago who fought to make today’s historic victory possible.”
