PFLAG Silver City is here to provide support for LGBTQ persons, their families, and their allies. Call 575-590-8797 and leave a message that includes a safe phone number. We will call you back, and you can speak with a PFLAG member. If you are LGBTQ, we can link you with local people and organizations. If you are a parent, you can talk on the phone or in person with another parent. If you are an ally, we can share ways you can support and advocate for your LGBTQ friends, family and neighbors. We also have monthly, confidential meetings where you can meet people----or just listen. The setting and tone is relaxed and welcoming.
LGBTQ persons and their families face unique issues and challenges. Whether it's for yourself or someone you love, learning more matters. Whether it is at a local school or around the dinner table, knowledge is power. PFLAG publishes many helpful, informative pamphlets.
To request a specific pamphlet or guide give us a call. We have worked with local public schools to reduce bullying by providing training for teachers, coaches, administrators, and counselors. We are available to speak at your event or conduct a workshop.
Advocacy is a big part of the work that PFLAG members and supporters do, working to achieve LGBTQ equality through changing not only hearts and minds, but laws.
Our Strategic Goals
I. Build the capacity of our organization at every level so that we may have all the resources, in the form of information, people and funding, necessary to move forward in our work with the greatest possible effect.
II. Create a world in which our young people may grow up and be educated with freedom from ear of violence, bullying and other forms of discrimination, regardless of their real or perceived gender identity or sexual orientation or that of their families.
III. Make our vision and our message accessible to the broadest range of ethnic and cultural communities, ending the isolation of families with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender family members within those communities.
IV. Work toward full inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons within their chosen communities of faith.
V. Create a society in which all GLBT persons may openly and safely pursue the career path of their choice, and may be valued and encouraged to grow to their full potential in the workplace.
VI. Create a society in which all gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons may enjoy, in every aspect of their lives, full civil and legal equality and may participate fully in all the rights, privileges and obligations of full citizenship in this country.
We welcome the participation and support of all who share in our Vision and Mission and who hope to realize our goals.
