Maricopa Community Colleges








Equality Maricopa is a group of Maricopa Community Colleges employees who are or who support lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) persons. Our mission is to offer support and visibility for our members, to provide educational and awareness opportunities about LGBT issues to employees and to provide an official point of contact between our membership and the Maricopa Community Colleges, as well as other, external lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender organizations and the student Gay / Straight Alliances.

We have members that are straight allies and members that identify as part of the LGBT community. We are an inclusive group – everyone is welcome. We have several very exciting events planned for this next year. Please see the schedule listed below. If you would like to receive more information regarding our events please contact our Communications Officer to be added to the Equality Maricopa Distribution List. Thank you for considering becoming involved with Equality Maricopa.
