Freedom to Marry was the campaign that won same-sex marriage in the United States and ignited a global movement. Freedom to Marry’s “Roadmap to Victory” national strategy focused from the beginning on setting the stage for a national victory at the Supreme Court by winning a critical mass of states, building a critical mass of public support, and ending federal marriage discrimination. Freedom to Marry worked with numerous partner organizations and allies on a campaign that combined litigation, legislative work, organizing, public education, electoral strategies, fundraising, and the hard work of changing hearts and minds.
