There are many paths to parenthood and many types of families in the Commonwealth, but Massachusetts statutes have not kept pace with modern science and the diversity of our families, leaving children vulnerable.

The Massachusetts Parentage Act will fix that, updating our laws to be inclusive and ensure all families, including LGBTQ+ families, have equal access to the security of legal parentage.

If you have experience with Massachusetts’ outdated and discriminatory parentage laws, share your story below and help build support for the Massachusetts Parentage Act!

Thank you. With your help, we can pass the Massachusetts Parentage Act this session. Learn more.
