Scouts for Equality is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization committed to ensuring that the Boy Scouts of America continues to be an organization that contributes positively to the lives of America’s young people. As Scouts, leaders, parents, volunteers, and supporters, we believe that inclusion and mutual respect are traditional Scouting values integral to building character, developing leadership, and promoting good citizenship. We will continue to strive for a Scouting movement that is rooted in equality and is free of discrimination.
The vision of Scouts for Equality is of an inclusive, vibrant, and strong Boy Scouts of America in which members, leaders, parents, volunteers, and supporters treat each other with mutual respect and acknowledge the inherent worth and dignity of all people.
The values of the Scout Law and the creed of the Scout Oath will guide Scouts for Equality’s continued work.
