Founded in 2017, North Bay LGBTQI Families seeks to provide families with LGBTQIA+ parents, caregivers, and children with a means of building community and advocating for inclusive, diverse, and welcoming spaces in Sonoma County and the surrounding areas. In addition to planning family-friendly social events, our group hosts workshops and other training opportunities for parents to develop the tools and skills they need to engage in intersectional advocacy for equity in schools, local government, and elsewhere in our rural, semi-rural, and suburban communities.
Through our work we seek to honor, uplift, and center the intersecting identities and experiences of our community members, including Black, Indigenous, Native, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Multiracial, and Undocumented community members, and community members with disabilities. We are dedicated to advocating for equity through an anti-racist, intersectional approach that addresses the overlapping forms of oppression that can affect people with multiple marginalized identities, and that links the struggles of groups facing systemic discrimination or inequities. We believe in the power of representation, and we welcome opportunities to grow together as a community. We strive to create a safe and inclusive world for all to thrive in.
We are a fiscally sponsored project of Our Family Coalition.
