LGBTQ Connection Offers 4 New Resources
4 powerful LGBTQ Resources in Sonoma County
#1 Youth Groups in Santa Rosa & Sonoma Valley
This is for youth ages 14-24 to create a safe and fun space to get to know LGBTQ youth in their area and support each other. This is great for young people looking to get involved & find a loving community. Santa Rosa hosts their youth group on the 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month, while Sonoma Valley hosts their youth group on the 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month. Drop-Ins welcome.
#2 Youth Leadership Team Launch
This is for youth ages 14-24 to be on a 6 month intensive team to create an advocacy project they decide that creates a more welcoming community. This is great for young people who want to be on a team, learn leadership skills, & want to take leadership roles. Without giving too much away, YLT is a beautiful and transformative experience where youth do a lot of self-digging and self-discoveries in community. Community is the essence of all of this. Youth interested can fill out the interest form and attend the info session, also listed here: inyurl.com/YLTinterest. Groups meet weekly & attendance is required.
#3 LGBTQ Best Practice Training on Jan 22nd
After much interest, we are hosting another free LGBTQ Best Practice Training in English! In order to better serve more of Sonoma County, attendees will not only learn about what affects the LGBTQ community, but also what affects the marginalized communities within the LGBTQ community: trans people, Latinx people, low income people, etc. Jan 22 in Santa Rosa. Details here. RSVP required: tinyurl.com/ycvanqbg.
#4 Promotores de Amor Training in Jan 31st
