Program: Florida GSA Student Network

Budget:
$135,000
Category:
Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy
Population Served:
Youth/Adolescents only (14 - 19 years)
Gays/Lesbians

Program Description:

In 2006, Equality Florida launched our Florida GSA Network with catalyst funding from the Collin Higgins and Roblee foundations to hire a part-time organizer.  Our network has grown to over 100 GSAs and  has played a vital role in passing local anti-bullying policies that now protect nearly 56% of Florida's 2.6 million students from harassment based on sexual orientation and 29% from harassment based on gender identity. We recognize that GSAs often provide a lifeline to young people struggling against anti-LGBT bias. We plan to build the Florida GSA Network into a permanent, powerful and youth-driven instrument of change.

Program: Supporting Fair Adoption Policies for LGBT Families

Budget:
$135,000
Category:
Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy
Population Served:
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)

Program Description:

Florida is home to the most anti-gay state law in the nation. Since the Anita Bryant hysteria of 1977, Florida has specifically prohibited gay, lesbian and bisexual people from adopting children, despite being allowed to foster those same children from infancy to adulthood. Over 200 children a year "age out" of Florida's foster care system never have know the love and security of a "forever family." We know that expanding the pool of qualified parents will benefits these children.   Equality Florida has made repeal of the adoption ban a top legislative goal.

With 8 million voters in Florida, the amendment passed in 2008 by only 150,000 votes.   Equality Florida is focused one passing statewide DP protections, including protections for the 90% of Florida's Domestic Partners who are opposite-sex couples.  We continue to educate the public on the benefits of marriage equality for everyone.
