Join us this Sunday, June 3 in Passaic, as we stand with Unchained at Last to end child marriage in NJ!
New Jersey was THIS close to passing commonsense legislation to end child marriage, until Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin pulled A865 from the assembly agenda on May 24th at the request of Asm. Gary Schaer, who wants to weaken the bill and leave children at risk of forced child marriage.
Unchained At Last, in partnership with the National Organization for Women of New Jersey and Westfield 20/20, urge you to Chain-In with us outside Asm. Gary Schaer's office on June 3. We'll wear bridal gowns and veils, with our arms chained and mouths taped, to show Schaer and other legislators what life looks like for a girl who is forced to marry.
Unchained at Last will provide the bridal gowns, veils and chains, all at no cost. All you need to do is register on the page linked below - and join us to make some noise!
