LGBTQ ADVOCACY

We are honored to have won Quorum's 2016 Nonprofit of the Year Award for our LGBTQ advocacy work!

We've been bringing our intersecting approach to LGBTQ+ advocacy work since our founding in 2010. We know that stereotypes and biases based on sex, gender, and sexual orientation are inextricably linked. Our mission is to break down the barriers to equality created by these harmful biases. 

We serve many LGBTQ clients who face discrimination based on their gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation. We've testified against transphobic bills in the Minnesota legislature, filed expert briefs, and advocated for LGBTQ-inclusive policies in healthcare, education, and other spheres of life.
