We know. You’re tired. You’ve probably spent the last decade fighting towards equality and thought it was time to rest. Me, too.
But, I really, really don’t want to tell a Fresno County child who needs someone to talk to and, because the teachers at his school feel emboldened to share their homophobic views, doesn’t have anyone. I don’t want to tell any kid that.
As many of you know, the LGBT center has recently closed. LGBT Fresno is stepping up to begin a referral/resource line, but we need to raise $2500 to get it going. This will be an important resource in an area that (while it’s come far) is lacking in LGBT resources. Your donation will provide us with the needed funds to open and maintain the line for one year. The IT provider fees that will allow us to offer multiple volunteers the connection to those who need help and resources. Imagine a teen will now be able to call, text, facebook message and get a friendly and helpful reply to connect them to the resources they so desperately need.
