Membership Drive Time
PFLAG Taos: Parents, Family, Friends, and Allies
United with the LGBTQ people to move Equality Forward. All are welcome!
Dear PFLAG members and friends,
Hard to believe but yes the leaves are beginning to turn and it’s once again time to renew your commitment to your local PFLAG chapter.
More than ever we need your support, by renewing your membership and getting involved in PFLAG. Many of you are aware we have not been as active this past year, within our community, which is not by choice but by necessity. Simply put, we have limited people resources to participate or create events that offer support, education, and/or advocate for equality for all.
Our very small Board, made a decision in the spring to put our efforts into supporting other local nonprofits, who are doing good work that promotes peace, equality, and affirms the importance that everyone be who you are and love who you love. To that end, we have awarded small grants to six organizations who are partnering with us in the coming year.
I am pleased to announce that the following organizations received grants from PFLAG Taos which will be used to promote our mission. There will be a number of events that we will announce during the coming year and hope you will plan on attending.
Community Against Violence
Taos High School (EQ Program)
