Equality Florida is widely regarded as one of the most effective statewide advocacy organizations in the country.
Equality Florida is a statewide education and advocacy organization dedicated to eliminating discrimination based on sexual orientation, race, gender and class. The organization reaches over 50,000 Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Supportive (GLBTS) households in Florida, making it one of largest civil rights groups working at the state level. Through a statewide network, the organization brings together local advocacy groups representing nearly every city in Florida. Equality Florida continually works with these groups to develop a unified strategy for Florida's progressive movement.
Equality Florida is committed to the principle that local organizations are the most important component of statewide and national efforts. Everything must be measured by whether or not it strengthens local groups, respects the work of local activists and builds bridges between communities.
Equality Florida is our statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights organization working to change Florida law so that no-one suffers harassment or discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity and expression.
