2021 Annual Report
2021 was an unparalleled year.
We saw a record-breaking 390+ anti-LGBTQ+ bills at the state level, with 198 being explicitly anti-transgender. Our opposition is motivated and unscrupulous, succeeding in passing 28 anti-LGBTQ+bills. However, we defeated 180 anti-trans bills (90%), and we also saw 921 pro-LGBTQ bills introduced.
Equality Federation deepened our support of state partners this past year, providing members access to the organizing tools and messaging needed to advance LGBTQ+ equality. And we completed work with our first cohort in our Project Game Changer program to execute year-round civic engagement strategies.
