We are building a team for Unmarried America -- a group of people who believe that the promise of
equality applies to everyone
of marital status. Unmarried America is the membership
division of the American Association for Single People. AASP is a federal tax-exempt 501(c)(3)
nonprofit and nonpartisan national organization.
A few years ago, we started with a small number of founding members in a few states. Today we have members in every part of the nation. Individual donors are the core of our organization.
Only a few political leaders supported the organization when we started in 1999. Today, our members include federal, state, and local officials from coast to coast. Momentum is building!
In recent years there has been a flood of books published for and about unmarried and single people on a wide variety of topics. Many authors of these books have joined Unmarried America to lend support to our cause.
launched a few years ago, the story
of Unmarried America was not being told. We have reached out to journalists
and producers with facts, issues, and real life examples. Today the
media is telling our stories and in the process are educating the
public and policy makers.
We are building alliances with civic and membership groups. National Volunteer organizations, such as Connect America and Points of Light Foundation, have welcomed Unmarried America as a community partner. Let us know about nonprofit groups in your area with which we might develop a relationship.
Although not enough young adults are voting these days, there is no shortage of enthusiastic volunteers for worthy causes. The influx of students doing
unpaid internships at Unmarried America demonstrates that young people do identify with our mission.
