Mission: The NEPA Rainbow Alliance provides education, support, and advocacy for LGBTQIA individuals and families while working to advance fairness and equality.
Vision: We envision a future where all people in Northeastern Pennsylvania can live openly and free from fear; where individuals, organizations, and businesses work collaboratively to provide an equal, inclusive community; and where we celebrate and nurture our diversity. To work towards this future we will educate and empower our volunteers to create strategic, peer-driven, sustainable programming overseen by strengthened volunteer leadership.

WE HEARD YOU! In 2015, we embarked on a Listening Tour with the LBGTQI community all around NEPA. We have listened and heard you. Stay tuned for more details! 2016 will be a year of engagement and empowerment!
Carl Halkyer, Board Co-Chair went to Harrisburg on March 22, 2016 as part of PRIDE Day in Harrisburg. Along with leaders of other LGBT Centers around the state, Carl met with Ted Martin, Executive Director of Equality Pennsylvnia, Dr. Rachel Levine, Physician General of Pennsylvania, and our state representatives and senators to talk about issues facing LGBTQIA people in our state. This is part of the Rainbow Alliance's commitment to help create a future where all people in NEPA can live openly and free from fear.
