Who are they? The HRC is the largest LGBTQ+ advocacy group and political lobbying organization in the United States.
Our favorite past event? Operation Swing State
Thousands of people around the country signed up for Human Rights Campaign weekly calls into swing states. These phone banks connected volunteers with pro-equality voters in crucial states to connect them with vote-by-mail information and other valuable resources.
Who are they? Equality NC is the largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights advocacy group and political lobbying organization in North Carolina. It is also the oldest statewide LGBT equality organization in America!
Our favorite past event? Young People’s Roundtable
This round table discussion gave endorsed candidates the opportunity to connect with attendees in an open, friendly space. They were joined by local candidates from North Carolina with a focus on issues facing young voters.
Who are they? Similar to Equality North Carolina, Equality Arizona is a statewide political advocacy organization that advocates for LGBTQ+ rights.
Our favorite past event? Queer Poetry Salon
For this event, Equality Arizona partnered with ASU and the Piper Center for quarterly readings with a diverse group of queer poets. The goal of the Queer Poetry Salon was to bring more queer culture into their communities in Arizona and to inspire new poets with open mic opportunities and panelists.
