Families are the basis for a healthy society, and love is the basis for a healthy family
Marriage Matters To Me is a grassroots campaign to get Oregonians talking to each other about marriage equality. The most important and influential conversations we have are with the people we know and care about. For the many Oregonians who believe that extending civil marriage to same sex couples is a matter of basic fairness and respect, Marriage Matters To Me is an easy and powerful way to start that conversation. By creating and sharing a video with their families and friends about why marriage matters to them, people are acting on their basic values. And they are bringing us closer to the day that all Oregonians can share the values of love, commitment and protecting their families through civil marriage.
The support for marriage equality is picking up speed this summer on a local, national, and international level. Watch these videos to gain insight on what is promising to be a pivotal summer in the race for equality.
