Since the election of Donald Trump, the LGBTQ community and our allies have faced some of our greatest challenges in decades — that’s why it’s crucial that we make our voices heard in Sacramento and call on our elected officials to take action!
Join Equality California and our partners for our annual LGBTQ Advocacy Day on Monday, May 21 in at the California State Capitol.
Our Advocacy Day will welcome hundreds of LGBTQ leaders, activists and allies from across California for a day of grassroots political action to raise awareness about critical priorities for the LGBTQ community, people living with HIV, and all communities impacted by the divisive actions of the Trump Administration.
Participants of LGBTQ Advocacy Day will:
- Learn how to harness grassroots political power
- Receive training on our legislative priorities and how to advocatefor them
- Attend a rally and press conference on the West Steps
- Meet face-to-face with California legislators and staff, urging them to pass key legislation to protect and expand the civil liberties of all Californians
