About AFE

Accountable for Equality (AFE) was formed to educate the public about the concerted efforts of anti-LGBTQ extremists, who they are, where they are, and what they do. Many opponents to LGBTQ equality hide in plain sight, behind a crafted language, misleading rhetoric, and complex legal jargon. Anti-LGBTQ extremists are active in the public dialogue and courts at every level, from cities, counties, states, and countries across the world. Accountable for Equality’s goal is to research and present objective information of those who wish to diminish the rights of anyone: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or anyone else. Accountable for Equality is a group of donors and activists committed continuing to fight for full equality. Accountable for Equality believes that no foundation, organization, or individual should be able to diminish the existence of a minority class under the guise of freedom. Together, we can win full equality and stand in the way of those who wish us harm.

What We Do

Launched in 2019, Accountable for Equality is committed to researching and publishing reports on opponents to equality, whomever they may be, and elevating the work of our allies who advance equality, wherever they are.

Accountable for Equality will also share the findings of its reports with the press and general public to build a support for equality.

Accountable for Equality also seeks to build up and amplify the message of our partners. We will promote allied research and continue to build the coalition of those fighting for equality, by stopping those who are against it.
