Freedom To Marry Press Release – New York 6/11/2014? Today Freedom to Marry, the campaign to win marriage nationwide, and Shiraz Events, the award-winning design, production, wedding planning and catering company, announced a new online partnership and promotion.

?Freedom to Marry?s Wedding Registry program is a simple yet significant way for supporters to do their part to win marriage for all committed couples across America,? said Michael Crawford, digital director of Freedom to Marry. ?Through the Wedding Registry, couples can ask friends and family to make a donation to allow same-sex couples the freedom to marry, in lieu of purchasing a gift. We?re delighted to partner with Shiraz Events and are honored that they have donated their wedding services to the cause of winning marriage for all ? so that all couples who wish to can celebrate their special wedding day.?

The contest will run for two weeks beginning on June 12.? The lucky couple will be chosen at random and announced via?Freedom to Marry?s blog?and?Facebook page.

?I?m lucky enough to be in a state where my marriage is legally recognized, and I am able to plan weddings for couples who will be recognized legally,? says Jason Mitchell Kahn. “It?s simply unacceptable that this isn?t the case nationwide and I know that, one day soon, Freedom to Marry will win marriage nationwide. It?s an honor to be even a small part of that effort.”

Freedom to Marry?is the campaign to win marriage nationwide.?We are pursuing our?Roadmap to Victory?by working to win the freedom to marry in more states, grow the national majority for marriage, and end federal marriage discrimination. We partner with individuals and organizations across the country to end the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage and the protections, responsibilities, and commitment that marriage brings.
