As a grassroots organization, the Lavender Rights Project aims to always center the needs of the community first.

As the Lavender Rights Project moves to restructure our leadership and Board of Directors, the Board Search Committee and staff are going back to the organization’s foundation to determine the short- and long-term goals and priorities we should be focusing on — and that foundation is the community.

We are committed to providing a broad range of opportunities for community members to share their experiences, discuss their values and needs, and contribute to the growth and direction of the Lavender Rights Project. Whether you were able to attend our Open House or take our survey online, your contributions will have a direct impact on how our organization connects with and serves the greater community.


Ways to provide feedback:

 

1. Take our survey online or by phone.

Community members can complete the survey below to provide feedback about:

  • identifying pressing issues for the queer and trans community

  • effectively cultivating relationships between non-profit organizations and community members

  • making legal services as accessible as possible

  • implementing non-traditional leadership structures that serve the community first

If you plan to take the survey over the phone, please contact us to schedule a time.

2. Speak with a Board Search Committee member.

If you would prefer to have a conversation (as opposed to or in addition to completing the survey), you may schedule a time to speak with a Board Search Committee member over the phone or in-person before Saturday, November 3. Please contact us to schedule a time to speak.
