Unchained at a Glance
Unchained is the only nonprofit in the US dedicated to helping women escape or resist arranged/forced marriages and rebuild their lives.
Unchained also is the only nonprofit dedicated to promoting social and policy change to prevent forced and child marriage in America.
Let's End Child Marriage in the U.S.
Child marriage is legal in the U.S., and nearly a quarter-million children as young as 12 married in the U.S. between 2000 and 2010. Unchained started and now leads the growing national movement to end child marriage in America.
The movement gained significant traction on Feb. 12, 2017, when the Washington Post published our op-ed article about child marriage.
Chain-In to Protest Child Marriage
Were you at the most recent Chain-In, in Albany on February 14? We wore bridal gowns and veils, with our arms chained, to protest forced and child marriage.
No worries if you missed it. You're invited to the next one, not yet scheduled.
