allgo celebrates and nurtures vibrant queer people of color communities in Texas and beyond. We do this through cultural arts, wellness, and social justice programming by: supporting artists and artistic expression within our diverse communities; promoting health within a wellness model; and mobilizing and building coalitions among groups marginalized by race/ethnicity, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation/sexual identity in order to enact change.
In April 2016 we launched a LGBTQ Sexual Health & Wellness program for queer/lgbt people of color in the Austin and surrounding counties.
We also formally came together with Communities of Color United: Coalition for Racial Justice (CCU) - a grassroots coalition of Individual people of color and organizations including: Mama Sana/Vibrant Woman, ICE Fuera de Austin/ ICE Out of Austin and the Alliance for African American Health of Central Texas (AAAHCT) Food for Black Thought and Rootwork - we are presenting a collective proposal to advance racial equity and social justice in Austin, TX working with the City of Austin Equity office.
Activities will include our continued work and collaboration with the Alliance for African American Health in Central Texas, ICE Fuera de Austin/ICE Out of Austin Mama Sana/Vibrant Woman on working with the City of Austin on the development and implementation of a health equity tool.
Our cultural arts work will include artist in residencies that will include skill sharing/building workshops, artistic performances, readings, screenings and exhibits.
