Barney Frank, the founder of the National Stonewall Democrats, said it best when he said, "If you don't have a seat at the table, then you're on the menu." This quote is of particular importance to LGBT individuals as we continue to struggle for full equality under the law. Our Campaign Equality program is designed to connect young LGBT individuals with LGBT candidates running for office to take part in their campaigns and help us get another seat at the table.
Campaign Equality is more than a standard internship program. Participants will receive training on how to work in a campaign, including the importance of field work, fundraising and more.
In addition, they'll become part of a team that is setting out to elect openly LGBT candidates to public office.
