How We Engage
PFLAG Sacramento offers monthly support meetings, supports local advocacy efforts, connects with coalitions, maintains a lending library, hosts and cosponsors community events, tables at local LGBTQIA+ inclusive events, and awards yearly scholarships.

For the respect, health, and safety of others attending, please do not attend an in-person meeting if you are feeling unwell, as well as do not bring any dependents who are feeling unwell.

A Seat at the Table Books supported us with a book drive to upgrade our library. Our library has books for all ages. Some of our new titles include My Shadow is Purple by Stuart Scott, Queer Chameleon and Friends by Amee Wilson, Beyond the Gender Binary by Alok Vaid-Menon, Rainbow Parenting by Lindz Amer, The Deviant's War by Eric Cervini, This Winter by Alice Oseman, He/She/They by Schuyler Bailar, and Kapeamahu by Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu.
PFLAG Sacramento engages with local advocacy. In 2023 LGBTQIA+ and specifically Trans rights were under attack at local school board meetings, and PFLAG members showed up along with other local nonprofit organizations to protect LGBTQ+ youths and their rights. We also attended Equality California's advocacy day to lobby for bills protecting LGBTQ+ rights in the House and Senate.
PFLAG Sacramento offers yearly scholarships of $1000 or more to LGBTQIA+ students each year. Last year our two recipients received $2,500 each. Be sure to check out our scholarship tab for information on when and how to apply in the spring.
