Council for Global Equality
The Council for Global Equality encourages a clearer and stronger American voice on human rights concerns impacting LGBT communities around the world. Founded in 2008, it is a coalition of 22 US-based human rights and LGBT organisations working together to promote the inclusion of LGBT rights in US foreign policy. Council members seek to ensure that those who represent the US--in Congress, in the White House, in US embassies and in US corporations--use the diplomatic, political and economic leverage available to them to oppose human rights abuses directed at individuals because of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
SRT has supported the Council for Global Equality since 2013.
