Where We Stand

PFLAG National speaks out on issues critical to creating a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed. From National Board policy statements to press releases on breaking news, PFLAG works to keep the critical family and ally voice part of the conversation. While we speak out on policy at the federal, state and local level, as a 501c3 organization, we do not advocate for or against particular candidates. We do, however, work to get out the vote, which is an important part of the process.
