Help Us Put Children's Rights First.

Them Before Us is made up of ordinary adults who are committed to putting the needs of children at the forefront of the battle surrounding the very foundation of our society - marriage and family.  Are you an ordinary person too?

Join us. Stand strong. Speak up. Lose friends. All the cool kids are doing it.
