Welcome!

The LGBT Rights Toolkit website is brought to you by the Campaign for Southern Equality (CSE).

Based in Asheville, North Carolina, the Campaign for Southern Equality is a non-profit organization that advocates for the full equality of LGBTQ individuals and families across the South.

1) We believe there is a pressing need for advocacy, legal and crisis response services for LGBTQ people in the South.

2) We believe that federal equality is the most efficient and effective pathway to equality for LGBTQ people in the South. We also believe LGBTQ people and allies in the South are uniquely positioned to accelerate winning full equality on the federal level by directly resisting discriminatory laws and systems.

3) We believe that every person – including those conflicted about or opposed to LGBTQ rights – can become an ally.

As a result, we’re taking a new approach, building upon a rich legacy of civil rights organizing in the South and working in close partnership with other LGBT and civil rights groups.
