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.
