The Soulforce Equality Ride kicked off for its first nationwide tour in 2006, after two test runs in 2005 at Liberty University and the US Naval Academy. Thirty two young adults spent two months on the road visiting colleges and universities across the United States which discriminate against LGBTQ people. Today, the Equality Ride remains a pillar of Soulforce. This is the year it all began.
