Leader for Marriage Equality

“We are proud of the charge San Francisco led to ensure marriage equality for all Americans,” says Carmen Chu (MPP '03), San Francisco's Assessor-Recorder. “The movement was ignited in 2004 when we took the bold step to recognize same sex marriages. When California lifted the stay and resumed same sex marriages in 2013, I was proud to lead the way as the only County Recorder’s Office to remain open over the weekend so that loving couples did not have to wait a moment longer to marry. This past week’s supreme court decision affirmed our gut belief of this fundamental right.”
