Child Marriage – Progress

With your help, the movement to end child marriage in America, state by state, is gaining momentum. Has your state taken steps to end child marriage?

Unchained started the national movement to end child marriage, with an op-ed article published in the New York Times in October 2015. Since then, Unchained has continued to keep a spotlight on the issue, with regular news media stories, Chain-Ins (political protests), email campaigns and presentations at conferences and other venues. Unchained also has worked with allies in several states to introduce bills to end child marriage. Thanks to these efforts, Unchained and its growing group of allies have seen progress in the push to end child marriage in America, as shown on this map.
