Mission: The NEPA Rainbow Alliance provides education, support, and advocacy for LGBTQA 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.
