“Last week I had the pleasure of being with so many talented leaders in the LGBTQ movement. I never think of myself as a “vendor” because I feel I play a small role in the work our clients are doing. I was welcomed with open arms and I am so grateful and moved. Being a part of the POC working group was something that I will cherish and incorporate into my daily life.” – Faizan Faruq, EveryAction
We are so proud to have had the support of each of our sponsors at our 2017 Leadership Conference last week in Alexandria, Virginia. At Equality Federation, our partnerships go beyond simple monetary support – each and every sponsor works with us in the LGBTQ movement. Be sure to scroll down to watch a video of some of our sponsors speaking passionately about why they support our work, and keep a tissue handy because there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
“What an incredible, powerful group of leaders you are! I anxiously await to see all of the good you will do in this world by applying the knowledge and wisdom you gained from the conference. We stand with you! ” – Amy Lukken, Tito’s Handmade Vodka
“Our work as data analysts and statistical modelers means a lot of hours with spreadsheets and maps and databases, but we build models to help real people win real fights in the places it matters the most. The best thing about the Equality Federation Summer Meeting is the ability to meet the people using our tools every day, and getting inspired by their commitment and their successes.” – John Hagner, Clarity Campaign Labs
Having staff from our sponsors at the conference not only let our state-bases members create new connections and foster allies in the movement, it engaged the funders in the work we do every day, all across the nation. We are thrilled that we are in the position to connect non-LGBTQ groups and companies with the on-the-ground operators.
“The Leadership Conference was a wonderful reminder that the important work to create equal, inclusive communities is happening in cities and states across the the whole country. We will always stand for acceptance and diversity, and appreciate our partnership with Equality Federation as one way we can do that.” – Tommy Hayes, Lyft
As we continue to fight for full legal and lived equality for every member of our LGBTQ family, we are proud to have the support of such amazing groups fighting right alongside us.
