Equality Federation believes that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people should have a fair and equal opportunity to thrive and provide for themselves and their families in every community.
Equality Federation is the movement builder and strategic partner to state-based organizations advocating for LGBTQ people. From Equality Florida to Freedom Oklahoma to Basic Rights Oregon, we amplify the power of the state-based LGBTQ movement.
It works collaboratively on critical issues—from advancing workplace fairness and family recognition to defeating anti-transgender bathroom bans and HIV criminalization laws—that affect how LGBTQ people experience the world from cradle to grave. Together with our partners we work on cross-cuttingissues impacting the community such as racial equity, reproductive justice, and immigration.
In its advocacy program we partner with leaders on the ground to fend off attacks on thte community and advance protections for LGBTQ people in state legislatures, where hundreds of bills affecting our community are introduced every year.
