Equality Florida, Inc.
November 15, 2009
Equality Florida is the hardest working social justice non-profit in the State of Florida. They are providing the tools to let activists and citizens throughout the state make change where they live - whether this is encouraging their employer to offer domestic partner benefits, helping pass non-discrimination ordinances in their city or county, lobbying their state Representatives or Senators to repeal Florida's anti-gay adoption ban, or joining national actions to pass hate crimes laws.
Equality Florida is helping elect pro-equality champions and openly gay officials in every corner of the state. They are helping donors in Florida understand the power their contributions can have when mobilized in a coordinated way to fight for equality.
Powerful coalitions are a hallmark of Equality Florida's work, as with the Fairness for all Families coalition, made up of the NAACP, Planned Parenthood, the Association of Retired Americans, consumer groups, unions and a range of faith leaders.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
inspiring individuals to become advocates and then providing them with training, materials and support to help them get the job done.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
smart, hard working, highly professional.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
help pass Fair Districts Florida to break the stranglehold of extremist lawmakers over what is actual a state majority of liberals and moderates.
