Working to achieve full equality for LGBT people in every town, village, and county across Long Island
Equality Long Island will work to inform the public of the critical, often discriminatory and forgotten issues facing the LGBT community, and educate our political leaders on solutions to these problems.
Equality Long Island works with elected officials and candidates at all levels of government to ensure that the voices of the LGBT community are being heard, and that issues important to the community are being addressed.
Equality Long Island endorses candidates for public office who are supportive of the organization’s public policy agenda to help increase the number of allies in government, and to hold opponents accountable.
Equality Long Island (EQLI) is working to achieve full equality for LGBT people in every town, village, and county across Long Island, through education and advocacy at all levels of government.
EQLI is the 501(c)(4) arm of the LGBT Network, an organization that is a home and voice for LGBT people, their families, and support systems on Long Island and in Queens.
As a non-partisan organization, EQLI provides the Long Island community with new and unique opportunities to get involved with public policy and government officials through community education, grassroots organizing, and legislative advocacy and lobbying. Our annual candidate endorsements help LGBT and allied voters to choose candidates that support issues important to the community.
