SC Equality PAC
The SC Equality PAC is dedicated to fighting for full equality in South Carolina.
The South Carolina Equality Political Action Committee known as the SC Equality PAC is South Carolina’s statewide organization that advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality through participation in the electoral process at the state and local level.
The primary purpose of the SC Equality PAC is to secure, defend, and protect equal rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in South Carolina through the political and electoral process; especially the election of fair-minded candidates for state and local offices. It was established under the laws of the State of South Carolina in 2011.

115,000 Voices for Equality
The gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community in South Carolina has become a defining feature of our state’s political landscape. More and more candidates are recognizing that the LGBT community is an engaged and united electorate that supports and empowers our leader’s who embrace equality.
Since our founding in 2002, SC Equality has identified nearly 115,000 same-sex and pro-LGBT voter households in South Carolina.
Each cycle the SC Equality PAC (political action committee) and SC Equality Coalition (501(c)1) surveys candidates in local, state and national elections about issues and policies that our members care about. In 2018, we will transform the survey data into comprehensive 2018 voter guide that showcase candidate positions on critical issues like local non-discrimination policies, anti-bullying policies, adoption by gay parents and marriage equality.
