Don Bivens on Civil Rights
As an attorney, Bivens said his stand on marriage equality is motivated by his legal career's goal of "righting social injustice." Bivens said that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the federal law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman, should be repealed. "I have serious doubts about the constitutionality of DOMA," he said. "There's also work to be done on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which should include protections for gender identity," Bivens said.
