What We Do
Equality Maryland works to secure and protect the rights of LGBT Marylanders by promoting legislative initiatives on the state, county and municipal levels. Our professional lobbyists and legislative team work with our allies in the General Assembly to shape and pass positive legislation in Annapolis and to beat back discriminatory legislation.
Equality Maryland’s sister arm, the Equality Maryland Foundation, works to eliminate prejudice and discrimination against LGBT Marylanders through outreach, education, research, community organizing, training and coalition building.
- We act as an advocate for LGBT Marylanders.
- We aim to empower ordinary citizens to become extraordinary activists.
- We work to provide a strong and unified voice for LGBT concerns in the media.
- We will tirelessly toil until equal protection under the law has been achieved for all members of our diverse community.
