TurnOut

Encore.org is mobilizing volunteers to health centers that serve low-income, ethnically-diverse, and other under-served communities! They are looking for both medical professionals and volunteers that are not medical professionals!
These centers are now vaccinating the most vulnerable populations and are understaffed in their efforts. The health centers involved in this phase of the program are located in the North Bay, South Bay and San Francisco.

Encore is looking for volunteers who can help at least 4 hours a week and make at least an 8-week commitment! If that sounds like you, sign up below to get started! They are particularly in need of Spanish-, Mandarin-, and Cantonese-speaking volunteers!

Last year, the pandemic brought the world to a grinding halt. This year, even as the new Omicron variant looms, we are now able to leave our houses, go to restaurants, travel, and even see friends. We have been given back the privilege of moving. But what happens if you can’t move? What if you have been trapped at the border waiting for nearly two years because of racist policies that criminalize migration? What if what stood between you and safety, a better life for your children, and opportunity was an imaginary line? Migration becomes a privilege when in fact it is a human right. Let’s reimagine a world where migration is welcome and not met with guns at a border. On the eve of #InternationalMigrantsDay, let’s reaffirm our commitment to safe and dignified migration.

The Holidays are a stressful time for most, but are especially hard for Black and Brown trans youth. Trans young people are disproportionately houseless, in foster systems, or in homes that do not accept them. TranSanta helps give gifts to trans youth and you can help! They post "letters to Santa" on their instagram and you can gift directly by clicking the link in their bio or below! It will let you choose a letter and you can buy items directly off their wishlist. https://linkin.bio/transanta?mc_cid=50f1c8e214&mc_eid=b739343aa6

Visible, vocal, and active allyship can be tough around the holidays. As allies to people who are #LGBTQ+, we have the power to model the supportive and welcoming behavior we hope to see in our friends and family. However, sometimes even the most dedicated #ally can run in to situations where they’re not sure how to react – or whether a reaction is even warranted.

PFLAG National and Straight For Equality are here to help with our next PFLAG Academy Online, taking place this Thursday, Dec. 16 at 8:30 PM ET / 5:30 PM PT and it's open to both members and nonmembers alike. We hope to see you there: pflagnation.al/Dec2021PAO.

Transmissions: Gift giving that matters

"I want to speak to those in my audience who may have friends who identify as some form of trans. I want you to take a moment and think of them, the things you love about them, the days you wish you could help lighten their spirits, and make them feel just a little better. As this is the season of gifts given as a token of friendship and camaraderie, now is the time to reach out and show others that you appreciate them."

In the earliest days of what would eventually become my transition, within weeks of my first coming out to the person who would become my spouse of 29 years and counting, I was handed a gift box.

Hello!!! I am reaching out as a parent of a 9 year old trans boy and as a graduate student pursuing a Master in Public Health. I need to complete an internship for my Masters program and would love to work / intern within the LGBTQ+ family. If you know of any places I can intern I would love to connect and discuss off line. I have already reached out to Gender Spectrum and Pacific Center for Human Growth with no luck. I appreciate your time. Thank you! Allyson

Hi there! We are looking for LGBTQIA+ individuals to participate in a research study to improve our current understanding of their valuable life experiences! In particular, we are interested to know more about what it’s like for LGBTQIA+ people to hide their gender identity and/or sexual orientation. Being “closeted” or “in the closet” is common among LGBTQIA+ individuals and can impact who they are, so we are also interested in how these experiences are related to current well-being. We need participants who identify broadly as LGBTQIA+, are at least 18 years old, and reside in the United States. As part of your participation, you will be asked to fill out an anonymous, online questionnaire (https://umt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esboO7M7McLFWtL) to tell us about your experiences. The survey should take between 25-50 minutes to complete. Your participation is completely voluntary, and you can leave the survey at any time. Those accessing the survey will have the chance to enter a drawing to win one of 10 $20 gift cards to Amazon.com! PARTICIPATE HERE: https://umt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esboO7M7McLFWtL Thanks so much!
Bob Minor: "There are many who can’t be as open about the syndrome as Michelle Obama. But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t there in the depths not just of women but of anyone who was taught by their culture that their race, sexual orientation, gender, economic status, able-bodiedness, etc. is somehow lesser and not the 'norm' of a culture that has thrived on oppression."
