We are the Equality Chamber Of Commerce Of Colorado Springs
We host monthly business networking events
We host a social event on the first Friday of every month
We connect individuals to the resources they need
We are a network of individuals and business owners within various facets of the Colorado Springs community. We partner with Allies and other LGBT organizations in the state of Colorado to keep equality awareness alive and to provide understanding and mentorship to those in need. We give our time and resources to help continue to unite the LGBT community. As we look up the road to equality, it takes all of us to stand against discrimination of any kind. We must empower our community, especially our businesses and government to do the same. Today, Colorado Springs has a thriving LGBT community. With many organizations and incredible activists, the LGBT community is making advancements for equality. Springs Equality is helping the LGBT community thrive in Colorado Springs. As a brand new cyber community center, Springs Equality works with businesses, government organizations, and individuals, to enrich and inspire the lives of the LGBT and Allied community.
