Historical Note

Project 515 began as an outgrowth of the advocacy efforts of OutFront Minnesota. The organization was formed around the 515 legislative inequalities between heterosexual and same-sex couples in Minnesota. Along with Minnesotans United, Project 515 was pivotal in the campaign to achieve marriage equality for all couples in Minnesota. Project 515 declared “Mission Accomplished” and closed its offices on July 30, 2014.
