Resource Center advocates for the LGBTQ community as well as all people impacted by HIV/AIDS. The Center’s advocacy takes many forms, from meeting with local and state lawmakers about issues important to the LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS communities to working with local government, businesses and schools to make more inclusive environments. We also keep the community informed, and encourage grassroots advocacy to protect our rights.
