Learn More About Meeting the Moment
Following a brutal legislative session and the Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs, we are entering a new chapter in the movement for LGBTQ equality. Despite resounding national support for LGBTQ equality, we face unrelenting political attacks from far right extremists. That’s why the Campaign for Southern Equality is inviting you to join us in Meeting the Moment in the LGBTQ South. Together, we can empower the LGBTQ community in the South to Take Action, Take Care, and Take Steps to Prepare.
CSE’s Healing & Resilience Work
Undergirding every area of our work at the Campaign for Southern Equality is a recognition that pushing forward on lived and legal equality for LGBTQ Southerners has an impact on activists’ fundamental health and wellness. Through our Healing & Resilience program, we focus on equipping the CSE community – including staff, partners, and advocates – with the necessary tools to care for ourselves and one another, while doing the work to secure justice and equality for LGBTQ Southerners.
