WE understand that being LGBTQ isn’t always easy and learning how to navigate through society’s complicated systems can be even more difficult when you feel alone and unsupported. Not everyone knows where to go or whom to turn to for help. That is why we are here to provide you with the tools needed to combat the social issues that plague the LGBTQ community.
We are passionate in supporting you throughout your journey towards equality. We want to deter the stigma associated with stereotypes that you face daily. Join us in learning more about the laws and policies that impact your roles in society and to stand up against mistreatment in the correctional system, healthcare system, on school campuses and across the nation.
