Family Matters

The Woodhull Freedom Foundation’s Family Matters Project is a lot like families themselves: Growing and changing but with a steadfast commitment to taking care of each other. The Family Matters Project is dedicated to securing full rights, respect and recognition for all families, no matter how they are formed.

We’re fighting discrimination in public policy, workplaces and communities, and creating the conditions that affirm our basic human right to family, no matter how that family is structured.

Immediate goals include:

  • Raising public awareness of family diversity through the sharing of stories and research and through a range of social media campaigns.
  • Facilitating collaboration with human rights and social justice organizations to draft and promote model policies and legislation preventing discrimination based on family structure.
  • Disseminating information through press releases, fact sheets, reports and infographics. We know that information is a powerful tool in the fight for human rights.  We want to make sure those who advocate for families are equipped with all the tools they need.
