LGBTQIA+ Teen Get-together

Something To Talk About Live

 
Without volunteers many nonprofit organizations, including PFLAG chapters, would not be able to do the life-saving work that they do in their communities. This episode of Something To Talk About Live, we will be discussing Tanya Ward Goodman’s article in the Washington Post, “The holidays are over. Here’s how to volunteer year-round.” with PFLAG chapter leaders Sandy Brown, Faith Moeller, and Sung Tse.
For more information--and to check out our discussion questions in advance--visit https://straightforequality.org/something-talk-about-live....
 
 
Take Action: Talk to Your Senator about The Freedom to Vote Act
 
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday will be celebrated on January 17th. And, as Senator Warnock of Georgia said, “...You cannot remember Dr. King's life & dismember his legacy at the same time. The Senate must act now to protect the sacred right to vote.” The Freedom to Vote Act resulted from bipartisan and bicameral negotiations, prioritizing fair voting access by enacting federal guideposts that prohibit gerrymandering and manipulation. The bill includes many of the important provisions that were also in the For the People Act and, together with the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, would be the most comprehensive democracy reform law enacted in decades. Learn more about these issues at pflag.org/CommunityJustice
Contact your Senators--don’t forget to say you’re a constituent by giving them your address and tell them PFLAG sent you--and ask them to vote in favor of this important bill to protect our democracy.

UWGB Campus Cupboard and Closet
 
The UWGB Campus Cupboard and Closet is a service that provides food, cleaning, clothing, kitchen and some household items to students who need a little support to help them as they complete their educational goals, or to not take on a second or third job so they can focus on their studies. An average of 45 students use the Cupboard each semester. Some of the students have unusual expenses in which they need support one time, others have limited or no family support and need food, cleaning or school supplies because they have $5 left in their savings after buying gasoline or bus tickets to get to work. Each story is different, but the need is present. https://www.uwgb.edu/cupboard/items-needed/
 
Cyber Works
 
Is your string of holiday lights half lit? Do you want to help keep exercise equipment, office furniture, farm equipment, florescent light bulbs, rechargeable batteries and household batteries out of landfills?  Cyber Works in Green Bay will take these items and more!
 
ANYTHING with a cord!
 
Questions? Call 920.497.2667
 
You can drop of these items off at: 844 Willard Drive Ste 5 Monday-Friday 8am-6pm & Saturday 10am-4pm
