About Us

As Nevada’s statewide LGBTQ+ civil rights organization, Silver State Equality and Silver State Equality Institute brings the voices of LGBTQ+ people and allies to institutions of power in Nevada and across the United States, striving to create a world that is healthy, just and fully equal for all LGBTQ+ people. Silver State Equality is a Nevada-based program affiliated with and supported by Equality California and Equality California Institute, the nation’s largest statewide LGBTQ+ civil rights organization. Together, we’re fighting for full LGBTQ+ equality on multiple fronts:

  • Electing pro-equality champions, up and down the ballot;
  • Passing pro-equality legislation in Carson City and Washington DC;
  • Advancing LGBTQ+ civil rights and social justice in the courtroom; and
  • Reducing disparities in LGBTQ+ health and well-being through education and advocacy.
