About Vermont Freedom to Marry

The Vermont Freedom to Marry Task Force (VFMTF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to gaining civil marriage equality for same-sex couples in Vermont. VFMTF formed in 1996 as a coalition of individuals and associations in Vermont who support the freedom for same-sex couples to enter into civil marriages. We work throughout the state to educate Vermonters about the importance of civil marriage equality for same-sex couples and their families. In doing so, we do the following:

Below is a snapshot of our work:

  • Tabling: Supporters volunteer at our informational table at county fairs and community events.
  • Public speaking: We train volunteers to speak at churches and synagogues, Rotary Clubs and other local associations.
  • Hosting house parties: Our supporters host house parties for equality to provide one-on-one education to their fellow community members.
  • Collecting signatures of support: Volunteers work at community events to provide supporters of equality the opportunity to sign our Marriage Resolution.
  • Other activities include: Organizing supportive businesses, clergy and parents of gay and lesbian individuals, grassroots lobbying and media relations.

The Vermont Freedom to Marry Action Committee, Inc. (VFMAC) is a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization dedicated to full civil marriage equality for same-sex couples in Vermont. VFMAC lobbies for the fair and inclusive treatment of same-sex couples in Vermont's marriage laws. Our activities include:

  • Legislative lobbying
  • Grassroots lobbying, including online advocacy, field organizing and legislative contact by supporters
  • Engagement in campaign activities
  • Issue advocacy
