About Connecticut Cares 2015: Marriage & Beyond:
In the last few months, harmful laws were enacted in Indiana, Michigan, and North Carolina that allow private businesses, publicly funded agencies, and public officials to refuse to serve LGBT people based on their personal religious views. This year's theme of Marriage & Beyond is both a celebration of our triumphant Supreme Court victory but also a steadfast reminder on the challenges that remain nationwide. There is still so much work left to do for equality, and we must continue to show that Connecticut Cares!
