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.
Did you hear the news?
Yesterday, the voters in State House District 80 (Brookhaven) overwhelmingly elected Taylor Bennett to serve as their next Representative in the State House.
Georgia Equality is proud to have endorsed Taylor early in this race and so pleased to know that there is one more pro-equality voice in the State House.
Taylor’s winning campaign proves that the targeted and strategic voter outreach work undertaken by Georgia Equality and our partners can and DOES work. More importantly, we are in a time now when candidates who make LGBT equality a centerpiece of their campaigns can win elections in Georgia and win by a significant margin.
Georgia Equality staff and volunteers are so pleased to have been able to support Taylor in this race and look forward to working with him in the coming years.
As we continue to fight for full lived equality for LGBT Georgians, the ability to help elect candidates like Taylor Bennett is crucial.
