Students United for Marriage
We are mobilizing our peers and powering the campaign to win marriage.
About Students United for MarriageOn campuses across Oregon, we are uniting to support the freedom to marry for all loving, committed couples.
We believe marriage and family are about love and commitment, working together, bettering the community, raising children, and growing old together. We believe in an Oregon that supports strong families and values freedom and equality. And we believe that marriage matters. To all Oregonians.
We are united in our belief that allowing marriage licenses for same-sex couples strengthens families and strengthens the state we love.
Eighty-one percent of young adults, 18 to 29 years old -- regardless of political affiliation -- support the freedom to marry. As students, we are mobilizing our peers and powering the campaign to win marriage for same-sex couples in Oregon, the last state on the west coast that does not allow people who are gay or lesbian to marry the person they love.
It’s as simple as treating others as one would hope to be treated. No one should be told it is illegal to marry the person you love. As Oregon’s future leaders, we are united in our hope that the people of Oregon will join us in supporting the freedom to marry for all of Oregon’s loving, committed same-sex couples.
