Freedom to Marry has launched a new campaign for Texas.
It's called Texas for Marriage and here's what it's about:
Texas for Marriage is a broad, diverse public education campaign to amplify the bipartisan momentum for the freedom to marry in the state of Texas. The campaign, led by Freedom to Marry in partnership with Equality Texas, will work to broaden the conversation about why marriage matters to all couples and their families.
The campaign comes weeks ahead of an oral argument before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit reviews DeLeon v. Perry, a legal case in which a federal judge declared Texas laws denying the freedom to marry to same-sex couples (and prohibiting in-state respect for marriages legally performed in other states) unconstitutional.
While the litigation in the state weaves its way through the appellate system, Texas for Marriage will grow the grassroots network of people throughout the state – including business leaders, people of faith, conservatives, First Responders, and everyday Texans – who are committed to ensuring this basic freedom is soon available to everyone in the state.
