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.
The Board of Directors of Georgia Equality is pleased to endorse Atlanta City Councilperson Alex Wan in his pursuit to become Atlanta City Council President.
Wan was first elected to the City Council District 6 post in 2009 and is the first Asian American and first openly gay man to serve on Atlanta City Council. As a member of the City Council, Alex has helped strengthen the city’s non-discrimination policy regarding gender identity and co-sponsored City legislation opposing the Georgia Legislature’s efforts to implement a so-called religious freedom act (RFRA).
