The HRC-led campaign,“People’s Brief,” was delivered to the United States Supreme Court with 207,551 signatures calling for full nationwide marriage equality. HRC and the plaintiff in the upcoming case to decide the fate of gay marriage James Obergefell, delivered the signatures ahead of the April 28th court case.
According to HRC:
“The People’s Brief has more signatories than any amicus brief ever submitted to the Supreme Court. With all of the signatures, each copy of The People’s Brief is approximately 3,500 pages long, for a total of approximately 175,000 pages. It has required four days of round-the-clock printing in order to complete the 50 copies required by the Court in time for today’s deadline for amicus briefs. Nineteen boxes were delivered to the Court on Friday morning.
