Parents, Families / Friends of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People — is the founding chapter of PFLAG, the nation’s foremost family-based organization committed to the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. Launched in New York City in 1973 by a mother who stood up for her gay son, PFLAG NYC started a national movement that now has more than 250,000 members and supporters in over 500 chapters throughout the United States.
PFLAG Jersey City was founded in 2017 by a core of concerned and dedicated parents.
Our mission is to create a better future for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth and adults through a partnership of parents, allies, and LGBT people.
PFLAG Jersey City provides services to families, schools, corporations, and the larger community in order to increase understanding and acceptance of LGBT people.
Our programs consist of:
Safe Schools – working with teachers, principals, counselors and students to ensure that LGBT youth are safe and successful in school
Support Services – preserving relationships within families when someone comes out as LGBT and supporting LGBT individuals whose families are not accepting
Corporate & Community Outreach – promoting an inclusive society through diversity education programs at corporations and businesses, community groups, religious institutions, and other organizations
Advocacy – advocating for LGBT equality and civil rights
PFLAG Jersey City’s unique voice is working to help make schools safer, keeping families stronger, improving the workplace, and educating the general public.
