Take Action - Los Angeles LGBT Center

The Los Angeles LGBT Center is one of the leading organizations advancing civil rights and freedoms for LGBT people.

By mentoring and developing a new generation of leaders, domestically and internationally, we’re strengthening the global LGBT movement while we educate the public about LGBT issues, mobilize constituents, advance policy initiatives, and work with political leaders throughout the U.S. to promote equality and justice for LGBT people.

In schools throughout the country we’re leading efforts to help end anti-LGBT bigotry and even the thought of suicide among LGBT students. We’re also working to revolutionize the care and treatment of LGBT foster youth.

Throughout California we train social service providers, caregivers for seniors, government agencies, law enforcement officials, and others to help them better serve the diverse LGBT community.

The 2020 Census is here! Although the goal of the Census is to count everyone living in the U.S., certain populations are inevitably undercounted, including LGBTQ people. We need to be counted as part of the 2020 Census so our communities can get access to federal funds for programs like SNAP, Medicaid, and public housing; have representation in our state, local, and federal government; and enforce our civil rights. 

Though the Census does not explicitly ask about gender identity or sexual orientation, LGBTQ people exist within all of the different populations that are undercounted and underserved. It is important that we are counted so that our communities have fair access to democracy and social services funding. We are part of this country and we need to be represented. 

Fill out the Census at 2020census.gov
