Effective advocacy enables individuals and organizations to shape public debate on important issues. It also ensures that we have a voice in the policies that impact our daily lives. If ever there was a time for the LGBTQ+ community to work together with a shared voice of inclusion, this is it.
In 2017, LGBTQ+ Community Centers across the nation partnered with CenterLink to form ActionLink – the Center Action Network. ActionLink enables LGBTQ+ community centers, including Affirmations, and the people they serve to act as effective and powerful champions, protecting the social services, health care, programming, and funding necessary for our communities to thrive. We advise our network of threats and changes to policies affecting the LGBTQ+ population, then offer quick, simple ways to take action.
