Founded in 1998, Equality California is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots-based, statewide advocacy organization whose 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 Californias 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.
Equality California is made up of Equality California (EQCA) and the Equality California Institute.

The Institute is an I.R.S. 501(c)(3) organization that utilizes advocacy, education, and mobilization programs to achieve its mission.
