The River Valley's voice for LGBT equality

The River Valley Equality Center is a community organization committed to non-violent advocacy for the rights of all humans, with an emphasis on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities and other minority sexualities. RVEC is using a combination of visible action, education, and social support to change misinformed hatred and prejudice to acceptance and goodwill.
