June 1st is Family Equality Giving Day!

In one week, we are calling on all LGBTQ+ community members, advocates, and allies to take action with us for Family Equality’s first-ever Giving Day. Our goal is to rally 500+ supporters with a gift of any size to combat the more than 500 bad bills targeting our queer community and families. Whether you can give $10, $20 or $200 – every dollar counts! Kick off pride month with meaningful action: join the fight for LOVE, FAMILY, and FREEDOM for LGBTQ+ families in your community and across the country.

50 years ago, Anita Bryant launched the “Save Our Children” campaign in Florida, spewing dangerous anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric. Now, from school boards to state houses, we’re seeing the same fear-mongering narratives resurface—but we won’t let them go unchallenged. For 24 hours on June 1st, you can join us in disrupting the onslaught of hatred and vitriol being hurled at the LGBTQ+ community. Together, we can shift the narrative and fight back.

Here’s how you can participate:

  1. Become one of the 500 (or more!) supporters by donating to Family Equality on June 1st.
  2. Amplify Family Equality’s mission and stories to everyone in your community that loves and respects our youth and families.
  3. Call on your friends, family, and coworkers to take a stand for LGBTQ+ people by giving and sharing their proud support for this critical work. Who can you count on to join you as an active ally in the fight for love, family, and freedom?

It will take the love and grit of this growing community to challenge these targeted campaigns against queer families. In other words: We will have to work together like families do.

We are so excited to recognize this powerful day in tandem with LGBTQ+ Families Day, a day that aims to raise awareness of the diversity, challenges, and joys of all LGBTQ+ families—found, formed, and chosen. Family Equality has spent more than 40 years ensuring that everyone has the freedom to find, form, and sustain their families by advancing equality for the LGBTQ+ community, and we can’t imagine a better way to celebrate this day than by supporting an organization fighting on the frontlines.

Join us for Family Equality’s Giving Day!

On Thursday, June 1, we’re celebrating 24 hours of LOVE, FAMILY, and FREEDOM to garner support for the work ahead—and YOU can get in on the fun!

With 500+ anti-LGBTQ+ bills introduced in legislatures across the country this year, we are aiming for 500 individual donations to support our work advancing equality for LGBTQ+ families. By spreading the word and giving to this campaign, you can help us reach our goal, supporting LGBTQ+ families at a time when we need it the most.
