MAP Equality Maps

Founded in 2006, the Movement Advancement Project (MAP) is an independent think tank that provides rigorous research, insight and analysis that help speed equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.

MAP has created a great resource that provides quick and easy summaries of laws that affect LGBT Americans on a state-by-state and issue-by-issue basis: Equality Maps. These maps present information on laws in areas from employment discrimination and relationship recognition to hate crimes protections and anti-bullying laws.

Embedding the maps – If you want to embedding the maps on your website, this link  provides instructions for doing so. They do ask for a courtesy email at to let them know if you do embed the maps. You will NOT need to update embedded maps; when MAP makes changes on the MAP website, the changes would also automatically be reflected on any related sites.

We encourage you to visit the MAP site to explore this great resource. And, to read more about employment discrimination, and the status of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), click here.
