The Equality Project is a public education and civic engagement program on policy issues and their effect on Texas citizens. The Project also trains participants to establish relationships with their state representatives and senators, and to advocate for policy changes with their elected officials.
The training covers an overview of LGBTQ issues in Texas, information on best practices for visiting with your lawmaker, including how to tell your story, role playing office visits, and a walk through the legislative process in Texas.
Learn more about employment nondiscrimination, family recognition, LGBT-parented families, hate crimes, bullying & harassment, gender marker corrections, public accommodations, and other pertinent issues. Also learn how easy it is to have a one-on-one conversation with your elected officials and their staff.
After attending the Equality Project, you’ll be effective, comfortable, and prepared to communicate with your lawmaker.
How do I bring the Equality Project to my town? Equality Texas Foundation is committed to encouraging every Texan to speak with their elected officials about the need for equal treatment in our state. We will make every effort to bring the Equality Project to any part of Texas where it is needed. If you would like to bring the Equality Project to your hometown, contact Robert Salcido, Jr., our Community Outreach and Engagement Manager (South), at Robert.Salcido@equalitytexas.org.
