Back to Equality Federation

Equality Federation Summer Meeting 2008

From August 6-10, state leaders from across the country will gather in Columbus, Ohio to articulate their vision for achieving equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in every state.

Hosted by Equality Federation Institute and Equality Ohio, this year's meeting will feature workshops, networking, and strategic conversations by and for the leaders of state lgbt equality organizations.

State leaders will also discuss the Equality Agenda, a roadmap we are creating together to pass equality laws in every state over the next five years. While we support efforts to pass federal laws, the overwhelming majority of legal protections for lgbt people occurs at the state level. Federation members believe that change trickles up. We work to change hearts and minds and laws in our own communities and states.
