What Other Movements Learned From Obergefell

From USA Today:

Gun control advocates lobbying Congress in the wake of the Orlando shootings learned a long time ago: build momentum first in the states.

Abortion rights proponents hoping to overturn restrictions on clinics and doctors at the Supreme Court learned the value of telling personal stories.

Immigration rights activists still fighting to get undocumented parents the protections already achieved for their children learned how to influence public opinion.

All three groups have taken a page from one of the most successful campaigns in history: the gay rights movement’s effort to win same-sex marriage, consummated at the Supreme Court a year ago.

As LGBT leaders reflect on that achievement and retool their campaign to battle what they see as continued discrimination in many states, they are passing on lessons in strategy and tactics to other causes. If it pays off, gay marriage will be the gift that keeps on giving.
