Planning the Post-Marriage Movement

June 13, 2013

In November 2012, three states -- Maine, Maryland, and Washington -- extended the freedom to marry to same-sex couples. And in the past few months, three additional states -- Rhode Island, Delaware, and Minnesota -- have followed suit, reaching 12 states in the nation that allow all loving couples to share in the joys and responsibilities of marriage.

After the victory celebration, after families are given the protection they need, after the confetti is all cleaned up -- a critical question remains: what's next? What does a statewide LGBT advocacy organization do after winning marriage?

Our team was recently on the ground in Minnesota to help our members, Project 515 and Outfront Minnesota, think through that very question. Watch!
