The U.S. State Department is appealing a federal judge’s decision recognizing our clients Andrew and Elad Dvash-Banks’ son Ethan as a U.S. citizen. The government is fervently defending a policy that discriminates against same-sex couples—insisting a married U.S. citizen must have a biological connection to their child in order to pass on birthright citizenship.
We’re not backing down. We’ll fight back as long as it takes to make sure the State Department changes its policy and stops discriminating against LGBTQ families. We’re in this for the long haul, but we need the support of our entire community as we push ahead. Read more about their case here.
