We could use your help and support for about 30 min. on Wed., April 13 at 9:30 AM at the Board of Commissioners meeting in the Courthouse on Olive St. in Newport. The Commissioners will be presenting PFLAG and the GSA kids with a Proclamation of Upstander Week in Lincoln County. Ineka and the GSA kids will share some of their experiences with helping their schools eliminate bullying and build a healthy school climate. Hope you can be there to be “PFLAG’s Posse” at this annual event.
The BOC meeting room is right near the entrance in the back parking lot. Hope to see you there!
The PFLAG OCC Basic Needs Grants provides emergency or urgent relief to LGBT+ people in Lincoln County. Individuals of any age who identify as LGBT+ (or their caregivers) and who demonstrate a financial need for medical aid, housing, transportation, or food can apply. The maximum grant is $250. Much of the Grant’s resources come from other LGBT+ people and straight allies. Contact PFLAG OCC at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application.

This month’s PFLAG support meeting is on March 9 from 6-7:30 pm at St. Stephen’s Church (9th & Hurbert) in Newport. “Lead with Love,” an excellent short film, shows a variety of responses to the news of a family member’s coming out. Since families have the greatest impact on the physical and mental health of their LGBT members, it’s essential for families to be prepared and to respond with love and support. Discussion will follow the film–and there will be refreshments!
