The EqCT Center for Policy and Mobilization works alongside advocates across movements to identify the needs of LGBTQIA+ people and develop policy solutions. We are a think-tank working to create original solutions to the needs of LGBTQIA+ people a grassroots movement working to leverage the collective strength of the queer community. We are a coalition of organizations working together to achieve change and advocate for queer people. Finally, we are also part of a larger movement.
Queer Policy Priorities: Working to develop and implement sensible and just laws and policies for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Movement Building: Building a statewide movement in every town and legislative district to mobilize LGBTQIA+ people for positive change.
Solidarity: Working alongside and in support of social justice causes across the state. EqCT recognizes there are times to lead, time to show up, and time to support from afar.
Tomorrow’s Leaders: We believe that LGBTQIA+ should be well represented in elected office. We seek to encourage like-minded people to get involved and run for office wherever possible.
Public Education: Laws, policies, and rights work best when we know them.
EqCT Coalition: We stand in awe, solidarity, and service of the non-profit organizations led by and serving LGBTQIA+ people. The EqCT coalition is a space for organizational leaders to come together and discuss the unique challenges they face. EqCT provides convening support and technical assistance for working toward solutions for the challenges raised.
