Equality NC Project
Last updated on May 29, 2013

History: Equality NC Project was founded in 1979 as the North Carolina Human Rights Fund, an educational and charitable organization established to promote and defend the human rights and civil liberties of lesbians and gay men in North Carolina. In the early years, NCHRF worked to document antigay violence, to fight for repeal of the Crime Against Nature law, and to provide legal aid to gays and lesbians targeted for prosecution. The group also worked to foster local organizations across the state, and help fund the first NC Pride marches. In the late eighties, the focus shifted to providing education on lesbian and gay issues. After a dormant period in the 1990s, a new board took over in 1999, changed the name to Equality NC Project and the organization became the non-profit sibling of Equality NC PAC. Expanding on the organization's history of education, the group began working to educate not only within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community but to educate the non-LGBT community on LGBT issues as well.
