Equality California is the nation’s largest statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization dedicated to creating a fair and just society.
Our mission is to achieve and maintain full and lasting equality, acceptance, and social justice for all people in our diverse LGBT communities, inside and outside of California. Our mission includes advancing the health and well-being of LGBT Californians through direct healthcare service advocacy and education. Through electoral, advocacy, education and mobilization programs, we strive to create a broad and diverse alliance of LGBT people, educators, government officials, communities of color and faith, labor, business, and social justice communities to achieve our goals.
In 2016, we celebrated the passage of our 118th piece of LGBT civil rights legislation in California, making Equality California the nation’s most effective LGBT advocacy and public education organization.
