Equality Florida Mission Statement
Equality Florida is Florida's statewide civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community.
Equality Florida Background:
Equality Florida was formed in 1997 as Governor Jeb Bush took office and Florida’s state government made a hard turn to the right. For over 25 years, Equality Florida has worked hard to make our state a welcoming and inclusive place to live, work, and visit. We've led the passage of policies at the local and state level to respect and protect our community in schools, in the workplace, in healthcare, and in caring for our loved ones. This experience has made Equality Florida uniquely suited to create real and lasting change for LGBTQ Floridians.
Through lobbying, grassroots organizing, education, and coalition building, we are changing Florida so that no one suffers harassment or discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
