WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN.
PFLAG Albuquerque works to promote understanding of
the LGBT community and to provide resources for LGBT
persons and their relatives. We support those who
are coming out and their relatives, we advocate for
progress on LGBT social issues, and we educate to
enlighten an ill-informed public. PFLAG is not affiliated
with any ethnic, religious, economic, or political
PFLAG volunteers conduct programs, host parties, provide refreshments, speak at engagements and do many other things. Volunteering is a great way to stay involved with the LGBT (or GLBT) community.
We invite you to join a team that has been making a difference in the Albuquerque GLBT community since 1995. Success depends upon all of us working together.
Challenges within our community, state, and nation continue. Discrimination still exists. Many New Mexico schools are still not safe for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) students or teachers. Many people still seek answers to questions about being GLBT, and wonder if they are the only ones. Society as a whole still attempts to limit civil rights, and to restrict the lives of GLBT persons and their families.
Through our programs of support, education and advocacy, PFLAG confronts these challenges. By sharing our experiences at monthly meetings in a safe, social environment, we support individuals seeking guidance and information. We sponsor a GLBT prom to help support our high school students.Our work, with Safe Schools and through our Speakers Bureau, provides education to both professionals and the public. Our speakers give presentations to counselors, social workers, teachers, and students, as well as government workers and members of other organizations in the general community.
We helped to place sexual orientation and gender identity in the New Mexico Human Rights Act, and we now address other concerns important to the community. There is a growing awareness that all members of society are entitled to equal civil rights, but there is still much to accomplish here in New Mexico.
PFLAG Albuquerque is a home for GLBT persons, their families, friends, and allies, where support, education, advocacy, and friendship is available. By supporting PFLAG Albuquerque, you will help maintain a strong positive presence in the greater Albuquerque area, and also support PFLAG, Inc., our national organization, which assists some 500 PFLAG locations and maintains a crucial national presence.
Thats why you should join today. Your dues will help us hold monthly meetings, fund our Speakers Bureau, and network with other PFLAG chapters and other organizations with GLBT and social justice missions. The success of the PFLAG Albuquerque Chapter depends upon all of us working together.
