About Us

Our Vision

We envision Nevada where everyone feels at home and where equality, diversity and inclusiveness are universally valued.

 

Our Mission

Equality Nevada advocates and educates to achieve fair treatment and equal opportunity for all Nevadans regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.

Equality Nevada focuses on youth, making sure laws are passed to protect them, provider funding and resources to low income families to help make possible that all youth can achieve the same dreams in life.

Equality Nevada builds a social and political voice for the LGBTQ communities of Nevada. We work with leaders from all around Nevada in an intentionally collaborative, inclusive, diverse, and respectful way.

We aim to advance LGBTQ protective policy, convene and organize LGBTQ leaders, people, and organizations, and elect candidates who support the various needs of our diverse community throughout the state.

 

Our Work

We’re fighting for full LGBTQ equality on multiple fronts:

  • Passing pro-equality legislation in Nevada and Washington, DC
  • Fighting for LGBTQ civil rights and social justice in the courtroom
  • Reducing disparities in LGBTQ health and well-being through education and advocacy

Equality Nevada is made up of two separate organizations working together to advance civil rights and social justice:

Equality Nevada is under the Equality Project, INC 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization umbrella that advocates and educates to achieve fair  treatment and equal opportunity for all Nevadans regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. Can be reached at info@EqualityNV.org

Equality Project INC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses advocacy, education and mobilization programs to achieve our mission.  Can be reached at info@EqualityProjectINC.org

Athlete Equality is under the Equality Project, INC 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization umbrella that advocates and embodies equality throughout sports. For millions of Americans, sports embodies our ideals of equality, fairness, perseverance, discipline and integrity. But in too many places, sports are not always a safe or affirming space for aspiring LGBTQ athletes. Every shirt or donation raised for Athlete Equality goes towards helping our LGBTQ youth achieve just that. Help make a  dream come true, by making it safe, including them and helping them with the cost that might make it impossible.  Can be reached at sales@AthleteEquality.org
