The Importance of Equal and Legal Rights for All

We educate Arizonans about the importance of equal and legal rights and protections for every resident and every family, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity and expression.

Today, for example, it is legal to fire someone because of their sexual orientation – and it happens. An inclusive Arizona that protects and celebrates EVERY resident will help us be the best state we can be – and protect every resident who is proud to call Arizona home.

Educating about the importance of full and equal rights for every Arizonan means holding a meaningful and open conversation in communities all across our state about what this means and how we will achieve it. You can help us educate our community by doing the following:

  1. Attend and participate in our annual Equity & Justice Conference. The conference connects advocates for the LGBTQ community and develops leadership and advocacy skills in today’s activists.
  2. Become a local EQAZ Advocate. By becoming an Advocate, you can become a leader for LGBTQ equality in your local area. We will soon be launching our Local Advocates program. Join our email list to receive the latest alerts.
  3. Join an Equality Arizona Committee to help us advance our mission and work. To find our about current opportunities email eqaz@equalityarizona.org
