To fight for the rights of the Latino Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) community by advocating for fairness and equality and by affirming Latino LGBTQ culture.
LGBTQ Immigration Work: ALMA helped establish the LGBTQ Immigrant Rights Coalition along with different LGBTQ and Immigrant Rights organizations. The Coalition serves to educate, and advocate for an inclusive comprehensive immigration reform that protects and is sensitive to the needs of the LGBTQ immigrant community.
Undocumented and Gay: An Honest Conversation
Hearts and Minds Initiative: ALMA is committed to working to transform communities to accept and celebrate the LGBTQ Latino experience. We will continue building relationships with other Latina/o agencies, and allies, to educate and empower individuals and families to feel safe and proud of their identities in their homes and communities.
Leadership Development: By connecting with national and local opportunities we strive to develop leadership in our community to help move the Latino/a LGBTQ agenda forward. ALMA also focuses on programs that foster this type of growth in youth while at the same time uniting our current Latino LGBTQ community leaders.
Scholarships: ALMA awards scholarships to provide some financial assistance to outstanding Latino Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning youth leaders to attend the annual Creating Change conference.
