WE DO Training In Hattiesburg

CSE works across the South to win equality for LGBT individuals and families in the areas of employment, housing and yes, marriage.

For too long, the South has been written off as unwinnable territory. We’re told we have to settle for incremental progress, with no definite timeline for full equality. But we don’t agree.

We know that LGBT people and allies across the South have a crucial role to play in the effort to achieve equal rights for LGBT individuals and families. We’re a scrappy little non-profit trying to make big things happen.

Specifically your tax-deductible gift will:

1) Expand CSE's LGBT Rights Toolkit.

During 2014, we held 13 Community Law Workshops across Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina.

As we work for equal rights we must also help LGBT people protect themselves under current laws. Our free legal clinics and up-to-date information about resources and rights help folks know thier rights until a time when LGBT people are fully equal under law.

We will continue this work across the South until LGBTQ people are fully equal under the law.

2) Grow our Hometown Organizing Project.

CSE trains and empowers local leadership (LGBT folks and allies) across the South to create awareness about equality issues and work for legal rights in their own communities.

Our second annual “LGBT* in the South” conference took place in Asheville, North Carolina on April 17 & 18, 2015. We were thirlled to have 500 activists and organizers from across 17 states join together for an amazing gathering that took place over two days. www.lgbtinthesouth.com.

3) Legal challenges to state bans on same-sex marriage.

Mississippi:

U.S. District Court Judge Carlton W. Reeves issued a ruling on November 25 in Campaign for Southern Equality v. Bryant, striking down Mississippi’s ban on same-sex marriage!

North Carolina:

On October 10, the Honorable Max O. Cogburn, Jr. of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, struck down Amendment One and ordered the state to begin recognizing same-sex marriages!

General Synod of the UCC v. Reisinger is the historic case that won marriage equality in North Carolina.
