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 nonconforming 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.
