Freedom to Marry is the gay and non-gay partnership working to win marriage equality nationwide. Headed by Evan Wolfson, one of America's leading civil rights advocates and lawyers, Freedom to Marry brings new resources and a renewed context of urgency and opportunity to this social justice movement. Freedom to Marry brings the work of its partner organizations and their many approaches—litigation, legislation, direct action, and public education—into a larger whole, a shared civil rights campaign that fosters heightened outreach to non-gay allies.
