Congresswoman Susan Davis to host marriage equality town hall

SAN DIEGO – Congresswoman Susan Davis and the San Diego LGBT Community Center are hosting a Marriage Equality Town Hall to address the issue of federal benefits and taxes for same-sex marriages on Tuesday, Aug. 27 from 6-8 pm.

With the recent Supreme Court decision striking down the federal benefits section of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), many questions are being raised on how federal benefits and tax issues will apply to married same-sex couples. Experts will speak on tax, immigration and constitution law, in a Marriage Equality Town Hall, to explain changes in the law and answer questions.

Congresswoman Susan Davis, Majority Leader Toni Atkins, Council President Todd Gloria, the San Diego LGBT Community Center, San Diego Pride, and the American Constitution Society will all be present to answer questions.

The presentation will take place at The Center, located at 3909 Centre St. in Hillcrest.
