Our Mission Statement
The Pennsylvania Equality Project (PEP) seeks to end legal discrimination based on real or perceived sexual and gender identity, while maintaining marriage equality. Furthermore PEP also seeks to end maltreatment against people within the LGBTQIA community. PEP firmly opposes the practice of "conversion therapy" and seeks to have the practice prohibited in Pennsylvania. PEP's goal is to raise awareness of our demand for equal treatment under the law for all Pennsylvanians regardless of ethnic heritage, sexual and/or gender identity, age, or race, and take any appropriate actions toward that goal.
Pennsylvania Equality Project in Action
Becoming 501c3 Non-Profit
Pennsylvania Equality Project Inc. (PEP) is recognized as a nonprofit organization in Pennsylvania. On June 15, 2018, we took the next steps toward becoming a registered 501c3; we held our organizational and first annual board meeting. Our Board of Directors and the Chairs of our Standing Committees are listed on our About Us page. A link to the PEP Bylaws is posted on this page. To date the committees include: Housing and Education, Youth, Military and Veterans Affairs, Transgender, and Elder Needs. If you are interested in serving on a standing committee, please send an email indicating where you live, and why you would like to serve on which committee. Email to: email@example.com. We will accept applications for committees on a rolling basis.
