Welcome to the
8th Annual Equality Walk!
This year we continue stepping toward 'Lived Equality,' reflecting an emphasis on strengthening our wins in anti-bullying and marriage equality while continuing to push for protections for LGBT youth, seniors and the transgender community through our Teach and Affirm , Map and Expand and Pledge and Protect programs.
The Equality Walk is one of GSE's biggest sources of support. That support keeps GSE strong and ensures we're able to fight for every member of the LGBT community.
The walk will be a roughly 2 mile circle from Kennedy Park in Asbury Park, across the boardwalk and back. If you can't physically be at the Equality Walk, we invite you to be a Virtual Walker. You can still register and collect donations online. On the day of the Equality Walk, wear a Garden State Equality shirt or pin wherever you are.
A team can be any number of friends, family and colleagues. We recommend forming a minimum of six, including you and five others. But six is not a required minimum, nor is it a maximum. The more, the merrier!
If you have any questions, you can email us at EqualityWalk@GardenStateEquality.org or call our headquarters at (973) 509-5428.
