KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

SC Equality often receives questions from LGBT South Carolinians who ask – What can I do to protect myself and my family? We know that as both policies and attitudes continue to evolve around our state and country, it is important that you and your family know what resources are available to you in our state.

TransAction

SC Equality’s Transgender Inclusion Initiative, known as TransAction South Carolina, continues to grow grassroots engagement and influence state public policy. This initiative has been instrumental in identifying the need for increased transgender education in many of our society’s fundamental institutions.

Our transgender inclusion education efforts have conducted transgender inclusion workshops with major South Carolina employers to training’s at state and federal agencies, law enforcement, health care and the faith community. By creating a broader base of understanding and support from societal institutions which interface with the transgender community. TransAction South Carolina has also been highly engaged in public policy issues, supporting fully inclusive Human Rights Ordinances across South Carolina and the statewide Uniform Non-discrimination Act and the Workforce Fairness Act.

TEST DRIVE EQUALITY

In 2012, South Carolina became the second state with a pro-equality license plate. Maryland was the first in 2008.

The license plate was created as a way of allowing residents of South Carolina to publicly display their support of community, culture and policy that encourages and advocates for equal treatment for all South Carolinians, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

With one of the lowest specialty license plate fees in the state ($25.00), the SC Equality license plate is an affordable way to show support for equality and the over 120,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals who call South Carolina home.
