The world is becoming increasingly hostile to LGBTQ+ people and their families. It is a difficult and dangerous time. With the support and guidance of our Advocacy and Public Policy Committee, Rocky Mountain Equality works to make Colorado a safer place for our community by educating policymakers and the general public.

We advocate for LGBTQ+ people to be safe and have access to opportunity including fair workplaces, housing, and education. Organizing as a community amplifies our power and ability to bring about positive change. We work to remain responsive so our advocacy efforts are timely and impactful to the well-being of the community we serve.

We also understand that members of our community may need an advocate in their day-to-day lives. When appropriate, members of our team will meet with employers, teachers, school administration, and anyone else where a member of our community may need a voice of support.

To request personal advocacy, please reach out.
