About

Why Marriage Matters Pennsylvania is a grassroots public education campaign to build support for the freedom to marry in Pennsylvania. This campaign is about sharing stories and fostering conversation – showing that every gay and lesbian person is a part of someone’s family and should be treated with compassion and respect.

It’s a discussion about freedom and liberty. Marriage is a basic freedom that should not be denied to anyone.

This campaign is an opportunity to consider new information and perhaps reconsider old ideas. It is about opening hearts and minds throughout the state.

This project is being coordinated by the ACLU of Pennsylvania Foundation and Freedom to Marry — and with the support and leadership of countless local businesses, clergy and community organizations, we can move marriage forward for all loving couples in our state.
