On The Issues
ERW is a state-wide LGBTQ organization advocating on behalf of our community. Working with state government in Olympia, as well as county and municipal leadership statewide, we educate and strategize with supportive elected officials and agency leaders, and we hold accountable those who make decisions that harm our community. On issue after issue, Equal Rights Washington serves to connect the on-the-ground needs of our diverse community with decision-makers in every corner of our state.
We've identified several frontiers along which we believe we can most effectively advocate for change at this time. We recognize that this is by no means a comprehensive list of the social and legal inequities faced by LGBTQ people in Washington. Nevertheless, as time progresses, the community's needs evolve, and resources become available, Equal Rights Washington is committed to ongoing review, growing our work and protecting our progress.
