Equality California Announces Office Move to San Francisco Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Community Center
(San Francisco) Equality California is moving its San Francisco office six blocks northeast on Market St., to the San Francisco Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Community Center, at 1800 Market St. Suite 401, San Francisco, 94102. The move will both lower overhead for EQCA and foster greater collaboration between EQCA and local community based organizations.
“The Center is a landmark for the LGBT community in San Francisco, and we will be proud to work side by side with other LGBT community organizations,” said John O’Connor, EQCA executive director. “We are grateful to the Center for making this arrangement possible.”
EQCA staff will officially open the new office beginning Monday, June 24.
“We are excited to strengthen our partnership with Equality California and look forward to welcoming their staff to our Center,” said Rebecca Rolfe, San Francisco LGBT Community Center executive director. “We have a long history of working together and this move will ensure greater communication and coordination on significant issues impacting the LGBT community in San Francisco.”
For questions, please email communications director Jesse Melgar at firstname.lastname@example.org

EQCA continues to advance equality through legislative advocacy, electoral work, public education and community empowerment. www.eqca.org
