I am Evan Wolfson, founder and president of Freedom to Marry, and a campaigner for marriage for same-sex couples. AMA!
I’m Evan Wolfson, founder and president of Freedom to Marry, the campaign to win marriage for same-sex couples nationwide.
I first wrote my Harvard Law thesis on gay couples and marriage back in 1983 and have been fighting for the freedom to marry ever since. I wrote the book, “Why Marriage Matters: America, Equality, and Gay People’s Right to Marry,” and argued in front of the Supreme Court in the landmark case, Boy Scouts of America v. Dale.
In honor of tomorrow’s one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s ruling overturning the core of the federal so-called Defense of Marriage Act, Freedom to Marry is asking supporters to join our campaign asking mayors to speak up for marriage!
We are working to show that America is ready for the freedom to marry, and it’s time for the Supreme Court to bring us to national resolution. Every day of denial makes a big difference, and we'd like you with us.
So please ask away!
