Volunteers are critical to our success. Whether helping out in the office, representing Georgia Equality at festivals as part of our Equality Crew, canvassing or phone banking on a crucial political campaign, engaging in voter registration or sharing your experiences with the community as part of our speakers’ bureau, we can find a way for you to make a real difference for Georgia’s LGBTQ community!

Georgia Equality Volunteer Positions
- Equality Crew– This is a group of high-energy, fun-loving, outgoing volunteers who care passionately about LGBTQ equality and want to tell the world about how important it is. To be certified as Equality Crew members, volunteers must attend an intensive training on issues relevant to the LGBTQ community and will work alongside our staff as a community outreach liaison at events and festivals and talk to Georgia’s diverse communities about the importance of LGBTQ equality!
- General Office Support Team– These awesome volunteers will work directly with staff on site at the Phillip Rush Center in Atlanta on light office/clerical work including data entry, online research, mailings, supply organizing and project-based tasks.
- LGBTQ Rapid Response Squad– These fired-up volunteers help us register LGBTQ Georgians to vote, canvass and phone bank, Get Out The Vote, attend rallies and help organize LGBTQ-affirming events in various communities and can be ready or on-call to jump in at a moment’s notice.
- Activism from your own home– For those with limited ability to travel to the Phillip Rush Center in Atlanta, there are opportunities to help from your own cell phone or home computer.
- Speakers’ Bureau Volunteers– The Speaker’s Bureau is a diverse group of LGBTQ and ally Georgians who receive training and preparation to speak in support of Georgia’s LGBTQ communities in front of a variety of audiences. This group will begin to meet quarterly.
- Local Organizing Liaisons (Statewide): Are you an ambitious LGBTQ advocate living outside of Metro Atlanta? Work directly with Georgia Equality staff set up and organize events in your hometown outside of Metro Atlanta.
