2009 Freedom to Marry Day

On National Freedom to Marry Day, Thursday, February 12, 2009, at local marriage counters in cities all over the country, same-sex couples will request marriage licenses at their local County Clerk’s Offices to raise awareness of the harms and impact the inability to marry causes on their families.

This national event is hosted yearly by Marriage Equality USA and this year they have asked Join the Impact for thier help to make this the largest Marriage Counter Action yet!

Since 2001, Marriage Equality USA® chapters have engaged in these annual marriage counter actions to render visible the discrimination that is enforced every day. It is an affront to our basic dignity as fellow human beings when same-sex couples are turned away from the marriage counter, but it gives us the opportunity to tell our stories and show that we live in every community and want to honor and protect our families like everyone else. Everyone who supports marriage equality is welcomed to attend and support this event.
Marriage Equality USA currently has chapters operating in 9 states, including Arizona, California, Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington.
