Equality NC is committed to fusing racial justice throughout all of our programming, messaging and work as a nonprofit. As the oldest statewide organization in the country dedicated to LGBTQ rights, we are committed to embodying an intersectional approach to our activism and to uplifting voices of color whenever possible.
We believe that this country was built on the labor of people of color whose voices have been historically shut out or erased in the interests of upholding structural white supremacy — even within the LGBTQ movement itself. Equality NC is committed to centering those most marginalized by power and privilege in our work and honoring the legacy of our radical ancestors who laid the foundation for the larger equality movement today.
Equality NC upholds this commitment to racial justice through coalition building with a multitude of community partners.
