The Houston GLBT Political Caucus is the South's oldest civil rights organization dedicated solely to the advancement of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality. Founded in 1975, it is the largest GLBT political organization in the city of Houston and Harris County.
The Caucus continues to mobilize the city's GLBT and GLBT-friendly voters, elect pro-equality candidates, influence local, state, and national elections, and works towards the implementation of pro-equality public policy. The Caucus continues to welcome any candidate who is willing to stand against discrimination and to support equal rights for GLBT individuals. The Caucus is nonpartisan and endorses candidates on the basis of their support for GLBT rights, regardless of political affiliation.
Outside of election activities, the Caucus engages in community outreach and education, often providing education and training on GLBT issues to various agencies and companies throughout the region and refers members of the community to services and resources that are available. We regularly work with law enforcement agencies to improve conditions in our jails and the treatment GLBT individuals receive from law enforcement officers. We also work to promote effective public, corporate, and organizational policies across the region that will make the Houston region a safe, welcoming place for GLBT individuals.
Our general membership meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at the Montrose Center, 401 Branard, Rm 106, Houston, TX 77006.
Hosted by The Houston GLBT Political Caucus in partnership with Legacy Community Health
Don't miss the opportunity to hear from, and ask questions of, our state elected officials as we head into an intense 2017 Legislative Session. Come hear their opinions on issues that affect the LGBT community, how to fight the expected volume of anti-LGBT legislation, and what are the best grassroots strategies for our communities to be involved in the legislative process from the beginning to the end.
If you have any questions or would like to be a sponsor please contact Mike Webb (email@example.com).
Looking forward to the discussion!
