As the struggle for equality and justice in the LGBT community continues, the Center Action Network will strive to effectively organize and mobilize LGBT community centers maximizing their advocacy, strength, and reach. Powered by CenterLink in partnership with the Los Angeles LGBT Center, the Network will facilitate community organizing between and among centers and develop effective collaborative strategies through a central location for LGBT-related information and action alerts. Community centers are the social services safety net for many people as well as the first line of defense for information, services, and support for the LGBT community. They are also the primary engines for local organizing. Now more than ever, it is critical to maintain our grassroots strength and protect our government funding streams.
