Who We Are

ProtectMarriage.com is a broad-based coalition of California families, community and religious leaders, pro-family organizations and individuals from all walks of life who support the traditional definition of marriage as the unique union of a man and a woman. We are committed to providing a vigorous defense of traditional marriage in the courts, as well as in the public arena through public education and legislative advocacy.

Our efforts are carried out though three primary programs: the Proposition 8 Legal Defense Fund, the ProtectMarriage.com Action Fund, and the ProtectMarriage.com Educational Foundation.

The Proposition 8 Legal Defense Fund provides for the legal defense and enforcement of Proposition 8 (Cal. Const., Art. I, § 7.5), passed by California voters in 2008. Currently, our top-notch legal team is defending Prop 8 in the United States Supreme Court, having been designated by the California Supreme Court to represent California voters and the state’s interests in Prop 8’s validity. Please make a generous contribution today to support the official legal defense of Prop 8.

The ProtectMarriage.com Action Fund was formed to protect traditional marriage in California by advocating for legislative policies that recognize and strengthen traditional marriage as a cornerstone of society and the family.

Finally, the ProtectMarriage.com Educational Foundation serves to educate the public about the importance of traditional marriage as a cornerstone of society and the family; to provide a forum for analysis and discussion of public policy issues affecting the institution of marriage; and to protect and promote California’s significant and valuable public policy defining civil marriage as only between a man and a woman.
