American Foundation for Equal Rights

About Us

Since its founding in 2009, the American Foundation for Equal Rights has fought for full federal marriage equality for all Americans.

As the sole sponsor of the federal constitutional challenge to California’s Proposition 8, AFER brought together bipartisan attorneys Theodore B. Olson and David Boies to secure a victory at the United States Supreme Court that restored marriage equality to our nation’s most populous state.  AFER continues its legacy of fighting for marriage equality for all Americans through Bostic v. Rainey, the federal constitutional challenge to Virginia’s discriminatory and harmful Marriage Amendment.

The American Foundation for Equal Rights is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
