Vision, Mission and Strategic Goals


Our Vision

PFLAG envisions a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

Our Mission

By meeting people where they are and collaborating with others, PFLAG realizes its vision through:

Support, for families, allies and people who are LGBT;

Education, for ourselves and others about the unique issues and challenges
                         facing people who are LGBT;

     Advocacy, in our communities to change attitudes and create policies and laws
                        that achieve full equality for people who are LGBT.

Our Strategic Goals

Build the capacity of our organization at every 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.

   Two. Create a world in which our young people may grow up and be educated with
             freedom from fear of violence, bullying and other forms of discrimination, 
             regardless of their real or perceived gender identity or sexual orientation
             or that of their families.

   Three. Make our vision and our message accessible to the broadest range
               of ethnic and cultural communities, ending the isolation of families
               with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender family members within 
               those communities.

   Four. Work toward full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons 
             within their chosen communities of faith.

   Five. Create a society in which all LGBT 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.

   Six. Create a society in which all lesbian, gay, 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.
