Love Makes a Family led the fight for marriage equality in Connecticut. Now the successful advocacy group is closing its doors.

Love Makes a Family got its start in 1999 under the direction of Anne Stanback. First the group helped create a law that allowed gay and lesbian couples to adopt… From there, Love Makes a Family paved the way for same sex marriages— The State Supreme Court made that a reality last October.

Today, Where We Live, Anne Stanback will be in studio to talk about how the advocacy group achieved its controversial goals and about its decision to close in December And we’ll find out how Love Makes a Family is helping other states achieve the same marriage right for its residents.
