Equality Texas envisions a state where all Texans are treated equally, with dignity and respect.
We believe equality is a commitment to:
Our Mission & Policy Objectives
Equality Texas advocates and lobbies for the elimination of discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.
While significant cultural, legal and governmental advances have led to greater equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Texans, LGBT Texans and their families remain highly vulnerable, without the vast majority of rights and protections that most Texans take for granted.
Through our education, organizing and advocacy programs, we work toward creating a broadly diverse alliance of people in government, communities of faith, labor, all sectors of the workforce and other social justice movements to achieve equality for LGBT Texans and the broader goals of social, racial and economic justice.
