Campaign for Right to Civil Marriage
- Name of organisation / initiative supported: CHAML (Non-Violent Non-Sectarian Citizenly Youth)
- Start date: 15 December 2014
- End date: 14 December 2015
The Non-Sectarian Non-Violent Youth Lebanese Citizens (CHAML) NGO is campaigning for the right to civil non-confessional marriage in Lebanon.
The country’s laws do not provide citizens’ the possibility of civil marriages, i.e. outside of religious institutions. CHAML is working for a legal breakthrough based on the current existing national legislation.
