About Why Marriage Matters Ohio

LogoWhy Marriage Matters Ohio is a grassroots public education campaign to build support for marriage equality in Ohio. This campaign is about having conversations and sharing stories, showing that same-sex couples and their families should be welcomed and treated fairly in Ohio. It is about opening hearts and minds throughout our state.

It is a discussion that allows Ohioans in communities across the state to examine their attitudes, beliefs, and assumptions about gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender peopleā€”to consider new information and perhaps reconsider old ideas. It is an opportunity to move a conversation forward about love, commitment, and family.

In Ohio, this conversation has begun. It is time to raise significant visibility of same-sex Ohio couples and their families. This project was founded by Equality Ohio Education Fund, Freedom to Marry, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and the ACLU Foundation of Ohio.
