About Equality California Votes

Equality California Votes is an independent political organization dedicated to electing pro-equality candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate or the White House. We endorse candidates who have a proven track record of supporting civil rights and social justice for LGBTQ people and who are committed to advancing these goals in their capacity as elected officials.

Formed in 2019, Equality California Votes is currently focused on electing a pro-equality president in 2020 and supporting pro-equality candidates in California’s battleground Congressional districts. We’re committed to defeating Donald Trump in 2020, while protecting and expanding Speaker Pelosi’s pro-equality majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Will you support our efforts to elect a pro-equality president in 2020 and protect and expand the pro-equality majority in the House?
