Policy & Issue Analysis

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans simply want the same chance as everyone else to earn a living, be safe in their communities, serve their country, and take care of the ones they love. MAP's policy and issue analyses demonstrate how current laws stand in the way of this very simple goal. MAP also provides detailed recommendations about what can be done to make things better.

LGBT Movement Overviews

The movement for LGBT equality is making progress, but it requires hard work by organizations, allies and funders. These advocates are more effective when they have information that helps them better coordinate their activities and strategically apply resources. MAP provides information and analysis about the health and capacity of the LGBT movement, helping advocates better deliver results.

Effective Messaging

Research shows that most Americans simply don't understand the inequalities faced by LGBT people. They also don't understand how these inequalities can adversely affect gay and transgender people's lives. MAP provides messaging guides and resources that can help Americans better understand the disparities facing LGBT people, the need for change, and the importance of action to support LGBT equality.

Equality Maps

Unequal treatment under the law can prevent LGBT Americans from being able to fully participate in American life. Gay and transgender employees have no explicit federal protections from workplace discrimination. In nearly 15 states, the law doesn't recognize the relationships of same-sex couples, meaning that they face unfair treatment when it comes to bereavement, family leave and medical decision-making.
