We recognize that our community includes children, youth and adults who self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) who are integral to our families, our community, our circle of friends and our civic life.
We believe that family, in its diverse forms, is the most important source of support for most people and that everyone deserves an affirming family.
We believe that youth in our community are valuable. Investing in their well-being, education and opportunities is vital for creating a better future for us all. All youth deserve to feel a sense of belonging and safety.
We believe that all members of our community have the right to quality services and supports consistent with the highest standards of professional practice and ethics.
We trust that our community continues to grow in its commitment to human rights, honoring diversity, and individual freedom.
We work toward inclusion, seeking common ground and shared goals in our community.
