Today on Your Call: What do you make of this week's Supreme Court decisions?

SCOTUS_sketch.jpg

This has been a historic week for the Supreme Court:  Rulings on affirmative action, voting rights, employee protection ... and today, same sex marriage.  What do these decisions tell us about the current Court and where we're headed as a society?  Where is the court following public opinion?  What do its decisions tell us about who has clout in our legal system -- and who's gaining power?  What do you think about the latest decisions and what questions do you have about them?  It's Your Call, with Holly Kernan
and you.

GUESTS:

Kate Kendell, National Center for Lesbian Rights

Brentin Mock,  Colorlines.com's Reporting Fellow on Voting Rights
