Our toolkits include a collection of resources – from Alliance for Justice and other organizations – designed to help you amplify your advocacy around critical issues, boost civic engagement, and maximize your impact.
LGBTQ Advocacy Toolkit
Nonprofits have a large role to play in advancing equality for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community. Examples of advocacy abound, from raising awareness and speaking out on unqualified, anti-LGBTQ judicial nominees, recognizing inclusive employers, lobbying for the elimination of conversion therapy, challenging the President’s ban on transgender members in the military, and working to defeat discriminatory ballot measures.

Alliance for Justice works closely with advocates and organizations focused on ensuring reproductive autonomy for all people. In this resource guide, we have collected advocacy success stories from reproductive rights, health, and justice organizations and paired them with resources to support advocacy groups working on policy goals ranging from federal legislation to ballot measures to voter mobilization.
