Why does marriage matter? Marriage says “we’re family” in a way that no other word does. Marriage is the ultimate expression of commitment and responsibility for the person you love.
Why Marriage Matters Washington is a public education campaign to help spread the word about the importance of the freedom to marry here in Washington by equipping supporters with the tools they need to share their personal story about why marriage matters to them.
We know that we can change hearts and minds through telling our stories.
Why Marriage Matters Washington is a project of Pride Foundation, the nonprofit, nonpartisan community foundation dedicated to LGBTQ equality in the Northwest, and Freedom to Marry, the campaign to win marriage nationwide.
Why Marriage Matters Washington is grateful for the support of these community partners:
- ACLU of Washington
- Equal Rights Washington
- Greater Seattle Business Association
- Human Rights Campaign
- Legal Voice
- National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
- Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest
- The Rainbow Center
