Why 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 people—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.
