An Innovative Approach to Advocacy
Changing a society that enables the forced underage marriage of thousands is no easy task.
Students Against Child Marriage is working directly with survivors, advocates, and experts to propel the campaign to end underage marriage into the American mainstream. We’re committed to leading a calculated and coordinated effort to mobilize the pure, untapped organizing potential of America’s millions of college and high school students.
Our mission is to raise awareness, partake in grassroots advocacy, and put pressure on lawmakers to act on the critically important yet widely unknown issue of child marriage. Through research and our conversations with existing youth marriage advocates, we have spent the last two years determining how to best use our resources and capitalize on the energy of America’s students in pursuit of these objectives.
We're Leading the Nationwide Campaign for the Biden-Harris Administration to End Child Marriage
Commencing with a nationwide day of advocacy on Monday, January 25, Students Against Child Marriage launched a national campaign calling on the newly elected Biden-Harris administration to end child marriage within its first 100 days.
In the pursuit of this goal, we have partnered with organizations and influencers from around the country with a collective following above 10 million individuals. To persuade the White House to act, we are taking unprecedented action and raising unparalleled awareness about this abuse.
