Today is the day of #GivingTuesday 2017

This year has been one for the books for the San Joaquin Pride Center. We have kicked off so many programs and have faced so many obstacles. It is only the community we have to thank for hanging in there with us and providing us with the strength to carry on.

That is why we, here at the San Joaquin Pride Center, go out of our way to partner with our schools and our local agencies to advocate for the proper funding that is due for our LGBT+ community. We are the only organization working on the local level fighting for local LGBT+ rights on a full-time basis and it's only through local accountability that we benefit from the strong pro-LGBT+ policies coming out of Sacramento.

In 2017, we launched our on-site mental health support. We provided free activities and events at our larger location to better serve our community. We have increased the number of youth we work with, have had the biggest turn out for our Youth Empowerment Summit so far, and built a collaboration with the San Joaquin County Office of Education and SUSD that will lead us to having stronger ties to our LGBT+ youth who live in the truly rural parts of the County. 
#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.
 Please participate in #GivingTuesday by making a donation to the San Joaquin Pride Center today.
 With LGBT+ apathy hitting an all-time low this year, our fundraising has been way lower than our previous years. Help us course correct and make a donation or share this email today.
