The West


Exemplary Policies


Coming soon! A regional list serv for advocates in the West is being built. This region-specific list serv will be used to share information about local challenges, organizing strategies and policy victories. The list serv will also be a place to connect national policy advocates to local issues of poverty, in an effort to ensure more comprehensive change at the federal level.


Directory of Anti-poverty Advocates


Coming soon! We are creating a directory of LGBTQ-led and LGBTQ-focused organizations who are engaged in service provision and/or policy advocacy. If you would like your organization to be listed, please contact us here.
