MEUSA is a U.S. national 501c3 organization dedicated to securing the legal recognition of same-sex marriage through education and outreach.
Marriage Equality began as an idea in 1996 with a handful of activists believing that same-sex couples should have the freedom and the right to civil marriage, and angry that the U.S. federal government wanted to pass a law barring LGBT people from this right.
In late 2000, the national organization Marriage Equality USA was officially founded. Since then other chapters have formed across the country and are chapters are growing every day. The organization's sole purpose and focus is to end discrimination in civil marriage so that same-sex couples can enjoy the same legal and societal status as opposite-sex couples.
Some of MEUSA's activities to date include:
