Our mission


The Whatcom Chapter of PFLAG promotes the health and well-being of LGBTQ+ people, their families, and friends through:

Support to cope with an adverse society
Education to enlighten an ill-informed public
Advocacy to end discrimination and secure equal civil rights.

PFLAG Whatcom provides an opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity. Keeping families together is the mission of PFLAG. Our family values stress education, understanding, acceptance, and support, but most of all love, thereby empowering our children — straight, cisgender, and GLBT alike — to lead happy and productive lives.

PFLAG Whatcom welcomes:

Any member of the LGBTQ+ community, as well as their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, children, spouses, friends, and allies.
 

PFLAG Whatcom is also:

a non-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) corporation
not affiliated with any ethnic, religious, economic, or political group
a volunteer, local, community-based group
