We are excited to announce the launch of the Southern Equality Fund, which will provide direct financial support to grassroots LGBT* groups and leaders across the South. This new fund is designed to elevate LGBT* leadership in the South and support vital, grassroots efforts to achieve legal and lived equality across our region.
Incredible work is happening throughout the South, but too often our community faces the challenge of limited or no funding for these efforts – especially in small towns and rural areas.
Our first funding cycle will provide grants of up to $250 to four participants at the 2015 LGBT* in the South conference.
We’ve made the application process short and sweet – just answer three quick questions about your work! The deadline is 5 pm on Friday, April 17. We will announce recipients at the closing conference session on Saturday, April 18.
