Steve Rudner, Chair of Equality Texas Board gives us a glimpse of what the LGBTQ community is facing in Texas.

imagesSince 2012, InterWaco has been very fortunate to work closely with Equality Texas. Equality Texas’ staff, especially Daniel Williams, has provided us with their time, talent, and resources.
