The Child Marriage Liberation Front is an FIU student project that aims to raise awareness of the issue of child marriage in the United States. Although child marriage is perceived as a distant problem that does not affect us, it is still widespread in the United States today. Between 2000 - 2010 more than 200,000 minors were married in the United States and out of that it is expected that around 50% will not graduate from high school 

By spreading awareness and engaging with young adults such as the students in the FIU community, we hope to create a platform that educates others as well as a network that provides support for survivors. This will generate awareness of this issue that will drive young people to fight for legislative change.

Please join us in our petition to show that the FIU community stands for implementation of a minimum age of 18 for marriage throughout the United States, no expectations.

For more information on how you can educate yourself and become involved, please visit our website and social media.
