Equity & Liberation
“If you’re queer and you’re dedicated to economic justice, then live that life and have those beliefs and carry them in your heart and put them into practice. I think as long as we stay dedicated to our community, nothing can stop us.” -Queers for Economic Justice”
Economic Justice Month (EJM 2017) is a month full of programs dedicated to economic empowerment and justice for our communities. Our motto this year is Equity & Liberation because at the SF LGBT Center we believe that together we can build a more equitable world for all. The Center does this by offering resources and services that address the needs of communities most impacted by oppression and a constantly evolving economy.
EJM 2017 also highlights the work of the Center’s Economic Development Department in providing unique support services and resources designed to increase the self-sufficiency and financial stability of low- and moderate-income LGBTQ individuals and allies. Some of these services offered include career building services, transgender/gender non-conforming leadership development, housing support services, and small business development.
The services of the SF LGBT Center focus on economic and social justice for queer people, trans people, gender non-conforming people, people of color, impoverished people, homeless people, disabled people, immigrants, indigenous peoples, sex workers, youth, elders, and all other marginalized communities.
Get engaged, partner, and take action!
