Group Will Educate About Same Sex Marriage

A new group, Hoosiers Unite for Marriage, will launch a statewide campaign to promote the right to marry for same sex couples. Freedom Indiana helped to defer the Indiana constitutional amendment on marriage, but its goal is only to prevent the adoption of the constitutional amendment. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Hoosiers Unite can't be directly involved in political or legislative work. "Our mission is really to educate the public and engage with the public," Megrath said. "As long as people are having these conversations at this critical mass, we want to make sure people are hearing really good and powerful stories." The group will focus on sharing the stories of same sex couple who are disadvantaged by the state's stance. Read more here.
