Help build our ecosystem of equality

Equality Federation is an advocacy accelerator rooted in social justice, building power in our network of state-based lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) advocacy organizations. 

Together, we form the largest national network advocating for LGBTQ+ equality and liberation, with our collective power reaching over 2 million people across the country.  

We know that state-level advocacy has the power to lead the way and guide the work we do locally and nationally. e are dedicated to taking an intersectional approach to dismantle the deeply entrenched systemic barriers that disproportionately affect trans and nonbinary individuals, as well as Black, Indigenous, and other LGBTQ+ people of color. 

This has, and continues to be, a big year at Equality Federation and our growing team of 18! Just this year we have…

  • Redirected over $230,000 in funding to our state partners for emeergency legislative needs, paid call programs, and wellness & healing justice. 
  • Launched our Vanguard HIV Policy Change-Makers Fellowship to advance HIV policy changes across the nation. 
  • Provided support to nine state partners through our Paid Call Program to make over 20,000 calls to their elected officials during particularly tough sessions.

This work is ongoing, and we can’t do this without your continued support. Make your Give OUT Day gift today, start a peer-to-peer fundraiser, or simply share our mission with your network to help us reach our $13,000 goal by May 30, 2024!

Support Today!

We won’t stop until all LGBTQ+ people are fully empowered and represented in their communities and experience full equality in their lives. With your support on Give OUT Day, we'll continue to empower our state partners, amplify the voices of the most marginalized, and work tirelessly until every LGBTQ+ person can live freely, authentically, and with full equality in all the communities we call home.
