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.
In honor of World AIDS Day, Georgia Equality will partner with the Counter Narrative Project on Living With- an art-infused lunch & learn discussion series focused on topics related to race and HIV. All discussions will take place at the Auburn Avenue Research Library and are open to the public. Read More
