Tell the New York State Assembly: End Child Marriage

Child marriage is legal in New York State due to exceptions that allow 16- and 17-year olds to be married with “parental consent” and 14- and 15-year olds to be married with “parental consent” and “judicial approval.” These exceptions lead to cases of  parental or partner coercion rather than consent, and stand at odds with our country’s policy on child marriage.
