Mission and VisionPride Portland
Equality Maine’s mission is to secure full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in Maine through political action, community organizing, education, and collaboration. They envision the day when lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons and their families have full equality in the hearts and minds of Maine people and in all areas of the law.
Maine’s LGBTQ+ community is vibrant and diverse; members are elders, immigrants, youth, parents, transgender and gender non-conforming, residents of rural townships and cities, students, and are from all economic levels. EqualityMaine strives to represent the needs and interests of the whole community. All voices are important to achieving their mission.
Changing the hearts and minds of Maine people and providing valuable learning opportunities on LGBTQ+ issues are two of our major strengths. Equality Maine believes in the power of education to support and advance our community.
Working in coalition and with the participation of other progressive organizations is key to their success. They believe in the central role of collaboration as an organizing tool, as well as a guiding principle for all programs. Through collaboration, they seek to grow the skills, capacity and power of their partners and organization so that their work leaves behind a broader, stronger movement.
EqualityMaine recognizes the importance of harnessing the community’s political power to achieve greater and more comprehensive protections for all members of the community. They will continue to strive for the empowerment of our community members, as well as policies that protect and secure the community.
