Georgia Equality’s mission is to advance fairness, safety and opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities and our allies throughout the state. We are two organizations – united with a common vision but serving unique functions in our work to achieve equality. Georgia Equality, Inc. works year-round to pass pro-equality legislation and elect fair-minded elected officials. Through the Equality Foundation of Georgia, we conduct voter registration and educational activities, provide information to decision makers, and work to organize and mobilize LGBT residents and allies to advance equality in urban, suburban, and rural communities across the state.

Evening for Equality 2016 was held on June 18th at the InterContinental Hotel Buckhead. This years event broke many records for Georgia Equality– more sponsors than any year before, the largest Host Committee, and with the help of all who attended, the event raised more money than any year previously. This year’s event raised $120 thousand!!
