Out & Equal is committed to workplace equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees.
Out & Equal is committed to creating safe and equitable workplace environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) employees. We believe that people should be judged by the work they do, not by their sexual orientation or gender identity. Every day, we work to protect and empower employees to be productive and successful—so they can support themselves, their families, and contribute to achieving a world free of discrimination for everyone.
Equality efforts for LGBT civil rights have recently gained significant momentum. We are at a critical moment. With the reintroduction of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and as we anxiously await the Supreme Court's decision on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Proposition 8 in California, we have much to be hopeful for.
Please help us continue to accelerate and build our momentum by making a generous donation to support the work of Out & Equal Workplace Advocates.
There is much work to do. Our job is not done. Though many United States citizens support workplace equality, most don't realize is that it is still legal to fire someone simply for being gay, lesbian or bisexual in 29 states across the country, and in 34 states, it is still legal to fire someone simply for being transgender.
We must continue to educate, build allies, and be a visible resource for those most at need against prejudice and unjust workplace treatment. To do this, we must have the resources required to capitalize upon the energy of this critical time for the LGBT equality movement.
We want to thank you for all the support you have provided to get us where we are today. Please take a moment right now to help fuel the important work that lies directly ahead of us. Now, more than ever, is the moment to make a lasting impact with your personally significant gift of support. The strength and speed of our momentum depends on you to help move us forward.

Yours In Equality,
