About this Item
- Freedom To Marry
- "Freedom to Marry was the national bipartisan organization dedicated to winning marriage for same-sex couples in the United States. Freedom to Marry was founded in New York City in 2003 by Evan Wolfson, whom many consider to be the architect of the modern marriage movement. Wolfson served as president of the organization through the June 2015 victory at the Supreme Court, until the organization’s official closing in February 2016. Freedom to Marry drove the national strategy - what Freedom to Marry called the “Roadmap to Victory” - that led to the nationwide victory. The strategy aimed at a Supreme Court win bringing the country to national resolution, once advocates had succeeded in creating the climate for the court by working on three tracks: winning marriage in a critical mass of states, growing national majority support for marriage, and ending marriage discrimination by the federal government." -- Summary retrieved on October 7, 2019 http://dbpedia.org/resource/Freedom_to_Marry
