Civic activist Jim VanRiper to be honored at
annual Tallahassee Gala

Equality Florida’s event will bring together leaders
in politics, business and the community

It has been an eventful year! After years of waiting Floridians now have marriage equality! But, the fight isn't over. LGBT individuals in Florida who were married on Saturday can still be legally fired from their job on Monday. We have to keep the momentum going throughout Florida to eliminate discrimination in the workplace and pass the Florida Competitive Workforce Act!

Lobby Days 2015 was a huge success!

It’s been a little over a week since Lobby Days, but the energy of those two powerful days is still here! During the event incredible volunteers from across the state engaged with over 80 Representatives and Senators to continue the momentum behind pro-equality legislation. The event was dynamic and inspiring for all who attended.
