Marriage is about love and commitment and, in a country based on equal citizenship, it should be available to everyone. Two-thirds of Australians, the majority of our politicians and the leaders of all major parties support marriage equality — for every Australian to be able to marry the person they love, in the country they cherish.
We're stronger now than ever before. We are closer to winning marriage equality than at any point in our history. And we won't stop until all Australian couples are treated equally.
To finally succeed, we need to build the broadest possible base of support to demonstrate that the majority of Australia believes in equality — young and old, country and city, parents and kids. It's going to take reaching out to our friends, family, and workmates to get them to join with us.
Our launch video tells the story of The Equality Campaign: A diverse community of Australians working together to achieve marriage equality through a parliamentary vote. It features everyday Australians — families, couples, friends, young and old from all over Australia.
The Equality Campaign was created by Australian Marriage Equality and Australians for Equality, with support from organisations, community groups and businesses across the country — as well as thousands of Australians from every walk of life.
We are working toward the most efficient and effective way of achieving marriage equality — a vote in Parliament. We call on all Members of Parliament of good conscience to work together to deliver marriage equality without delay.
But most important of all, make sure you tell everyone why you believe all Australians should have the right to get married. To achieve full equality, we are going to have to talk to more people in more ways than ever before.
Research shows real-life conversations are incredibly powerful. They’re what change hearts and minds. That’s why right now, marriage equality supporters are igniting thousands of conversations all across Australia.
