Weekly Events

  • Wednesdays at 7:30 am: Yoga for Organizers
  • Join us weekly on Wednesday mornings for Yoga For Organizers. Arizona has seen more anti-LGBTQ+ bills introduced this session than any other state in the country. As we head into pivotal midterm elections later this year, it’s important for us as organizers and advocates to have the tools we need to master stress and bring our best selves to the movement.

Midterm elections perennially suffer from lower voter turnout, and critical down-ballot races — that decide the future of LGBTQ+ rights — often go overlooked. Can we count on your help to reverse that trend? Volunteer with Equality Arizona to mobilize voters for pro-LGBTQ+ candidates running in the midterm elections. We have six volunteer action dates scheduled during the month of August, where we'll be making calls on behalf of our endorsed candidates. To learn more about our endorsements for 2022, click here.
