Here's the issue.

May 17, 2004: Massachusetts becomes the first U.S. state to legalize marriage equality.

June 26, 2013: The Defense of Marriage Act is ruled unconstitutional, giving same-sex marriages federal recognition.

June 26, 2015: The Supreme Court makes marriage equality the law of the land.



Marriage grants thousands of federal and state protections that Americans count on to care for their families, in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. Now, all couples in all states have access to the security, clarity, and responsibilities of marriage. Gone is the "separate but equal" mentality of civil-unions. Gone is the complicated patchwork of laws. Today, marriage equality is law.


YOU made a difference.

June 26, 2015 was evidence that when people give a damn, come together, and speak out, change happens. This victory was made possible through the tireless work of our partners, and through the energy and voice of supporters like you! The role of the internet and social media in the equality movement has been huge. It has the potential to reach millions with messages of love, and the ability to change hearts and minds. We encourage you to continue giving a damn about the issues important to you. Continue to make your voice heard.
