Arizona lacks equal protections.

Did you know that 73% of Arizonans mistakenly believe that sexual orientation and gender identity or expression is covered by Arizona’s non-discrimination laws? The truth is that they’re not covered, and we want to change that.

How we help.

Our work helps educate the general public, business leaders, faith leaders and elected officials that these protections don’t currently exist and why it is so important to update our policies for both LGBT people and our state’s economic future.

Business

We educate and engage the business community on the benefits of LGBT inclusion and its direct impact on Arizona’s image and competitiveness. We have conducted extensive research on the contribution of the LGBT and allied community and have created a workplace inclusion-training curriculum.

Faith

Our faith director works with communities of faith across the state through a dynamic curriculum program meant to break down barriers between faith and LGBT people. To date, more than two hundred clergy members of all faiths have signed the UNITY Pledge and joined our efforts.

Transgender

We work to break down barriers and increase understanding of transgender issues and people. We do outreach and education to businesses, schools, and faith communities of all kinds to broaden awareness of transgender issues across the state through educational presentations and story telling.

Millennial

We are educating, engaging and empowering Millennials – the workforce of today and the business and community leaders of the future – about the importance of a fully inclusive Arizona. Through our Millennial outreach our goal is to create advocates across Arizona for inclusion and equal treatment.
