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.
CHECK YOUR STATUS (don’t assume you are good to go)
Last year several Georgia voters were taken off the voter rolls who shouldn’t have been. Don’t wait until you go vote to find out this has happened to you. Before you go to the polls on Tuesday, May 20th, check your voter registration status. It’s super fast and easy to do online.

Recently, Georgia Equality was honored to host the launch of a thirteen-state campaign to build support for marriage equality in the south. Working with the national organization Freedom to Marry and eleven other southern LGBT advocacy organizations, the new effort, called Southerners for the Freedom to Marry, will include significant field and media work over the next year in partnership with supportive organizations across the region.
