C.L.I.C.K. for Justice and Equality is an agent of change alerting our social community of injustices and inequalities among the underserved, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised individual or group. A disadvantaged or disenfranchised person or group is anyone who is socially, culturally, and politically deprived of or oppressed from life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Change takes place through our legislative body of Senators and State Representatives, not from the Judicial bench.
The Supreme Court Wednesday struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, the ban on federal benefits for same-sex married couples, on a 5-4 vote.

But in a 5-4 decision that crossed ideological lines, the Supreme Court Wednesday declined to rule on the merits of Proposition 8, California’s voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage.
