Legal Equality Project

Through our Legal Equality Project, the Campaign for Southern Equality works across the South to strike down discriminatory laws and policies that are driven by anti-LGBT animus, and to promote the passage of LGBT-affirming laws. We use tactics including litigation, lobbying, storytelling, direct action and public education.

The Advocate reported on our efforts to win LGBT rights in the South:

The feeling of LGBT Southerners being left to fend for themselves was the impetus for the Asheville, N.C.-based Campaign for Southern Equality, a scrappy five-year-old organization that’s been racking up impressive wins, even in an environment that feels increasingly hostile to queer rights.
