ACLU of Missouri

On June 24, the ACLU of Missouri filed a petition in Jackson County on behalf of two couples (Angela Curtis & Shannon McGinty and Kyle Lawson and Evan Dahlgren), who wanted to get married but were denied marriage licenses because of Missouri’s unconstitutional amendment limiting marriage to opposite sex couples. Both couples tried to get marriage licenses in Jackson County.
