Somos Familia is a community-based organization founded 13 years ago by two moms who wanted to make the world safer and more accepting for our Latinx Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) youth and their families. Our community volunteers provide peer support and education programs, such as workshops on acceptance, gender and sexuality terminology, and being an ally. Each year, we reach hundreds of childcare providers, community-based organizations, school staff, youth, and parents. Our community-building events provide safe spaces for families with LGBTQ children to come together and support one another. We also develop and disseminate critically needed bilingual education materials, which are used in several countries.
With your contributions last year, we were able to bring together more than 100 Latinxs to talk about family and community acceptance in our community.
This year, 50% of your donations will go directly to people in the community affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the other 50% will be used to continue our vital work to create safe spaces in our families and community for LGBTQ people.
Thanks for your support!
