About Equality Federation:
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.
We work 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 in the communities we call home.
We have three primary goals:
- Build momentum at the state and local level toward pro-LGBTQ policies;
- Strengthen the leadership, organizational capacity, and power of our member organizations; and
- Drive the development of a collaborative, racial justice informed approach to LGBTQ advocacy work.
Our work is grounded in long-term relationship building, creating spaces for peer-learning and networking, tailored coaching and training, and providing cutting-edge tools and strategies to our members to accelerate their advocacy.
Our team, although distributed across the country, is close-knit and works collaboratively.
