Ten years ago, I walked in Garden State Equality’s first-ever Equality Walk, and even with all the progress we’ve made since then, I can tell you this year is just as important.
Right now, we’re working to ban the gay and trans panic defense, reform HIV criminalization laws, secure statewide funding for homeless LGBTQ youth, and pass a bill of rights for LGBTQ older adults.
That’s why I’m still walking—because the fight is still not over—but we can’t continue that work without your help. Will you join me in walking in this year’s Equality Walk?
Just like last year, this year’s Equality Walk will be a weekend-long event across the state with locations in Atlantic City, Asbury Park, and Montclair... and we’re also adding a fourth location in Trenton!
I’m looking forward to seeing you again in October. Thanks for all you do to make New Jersey a better place for our community year after year.
