Equality Center

Equality Center

Conveniently located at the corner of 17th Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW in the heart of Washington, DC’s central business district, the Equality Center is steps away from several major city avenues and three Metro lines, as well as various restaurants, shopping, and hotels.

The Equality Center is comprised of the Equality Forum and the Conference Center. Both of these adaptable event spaces can be transformed to fully serve your individual needs.

Whether you’re looking for a corporate event space or a party venue, DC has few better options than HRC’s Equality Forum. The modern, airy design makes it a unique venue for lectures, trainings, receptions, dinners, commitment ceremonies, weddings, and other events which require a large, creative space.

Equally versatile, the Conference Center is appropriate for both formal gatherings and party space rental. Adjacent to the Equality Forum, it serves as a perfect weekday, evening or weekend event space in DC. It is made up of three separate but adjoining rooms which may be opened to create one large room. All three rooms connect to an open hallway, complete with a long buffet suitable for catering or visual displays.

The event planning expertise of the Equality Center's seasoned staff will ensure the smooth execution of your event. A number of amenities are available, including equipment and audiovisual technology. The staff will gladly set up any conferencing equipment requirements, and a responsive IT support team will always be there to meet your needs.
