Civil Union Amendment Act

CLICK HERE to submit your feedback on the Amendment of the Civil Union Amendment Act to the Speaker of Parliament


Make your voice heard, and show your support for marriage equality in South Africa.

As you may or may not know, at present, civil service marriage officers may refuse to solemnise civil unions of same-sex couples; this is the only instance where a marriage officer is entitled to refuse to solemnise a union. Clearly, this is discriminatory, and in frank violation of section 9(3) of our prized Constitution.
