EQUALITY COMMUNITY CENTER
Location511 CONGRESS STREETPORTLAND, ME 04101 United States
In 2014, a group of community members set out to explore how to fund the creation of an LGBTQ+ community center in Maine. Over time, they developed a financial plan they believed was viable - one that could both establish a community center and secure its sustainability. In 2015, a Board of Directors formed. One year later, they opened the doors to the Equality Community Center at 511 Congress Street in downtown Portland. This landmark event marked the completion of Phase One of the vision.
The Equality Community Center is a nonprofit organization that houses LGBTQ+ and social justice oriented non-profit organizations that are working to achieve equality for various marginalized communities in Maine.
