LGBTQ Community Centers across the nation have partnered with CenterLink to form a vital network. Center Action Network (CAN) was created for community centers by community centers. CAN enables centers and their constituents to act as effective and powerful champions; protecting social services, health care, programming, and funding within the LGBTQ community. This unprecedented collaboration keeps members advised of threats or changes to policies affecting the LGBTQ population. CAN then creates quick, easy actions for members to take; speaking as one powerful voice.
Why is CAN so important? Because centers have direct contact with the most vulnerable within the LGBTQ community. They are often the first line of defense for critically important information, support, and services. Centers are also leading advocates in grassroots organizing. Click here to see if your local community center is part of our network. Tell them to partner with us if they haven't already. Then sign up yourself and join the movement. Because together we CAN make a difference.
2018 LGBT Community Center Survey Report
Every two years, Movement Advancement Project and CenterLink complete a survey of LGBT community centers across the United States. This year, 218 community centers were asked to participate. We're excited to share the 2018 LGBT Community Center Survey Report. Especially notable is this infographic from the report, about the extent to which centers engage in advocacy. Community centers, along with CAN, are great resources for engagement in policy and advocacy!
