Become a Member of PFLAG New Orleans
Thank you for your interest in starting or renewing your PFLAG membership.
Thank you for your past and current support for the New Orleans Area chapter of PFLAG. Your support makes it possible for PFLAG New Orleans and the PFLAG National Office to stand up for equality, fairness and justice in Louisiana and in Washington, D.C. With your support, we are making a difference.
Our efforts to support the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community have continued throughout the last year and we have been very active fulfilling our mission to promote the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons, their families and friends through:
1. Support to cope with an adverse society
2. Education to enlighten an ill-informed public
3. Advocacy to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights
The New Orleans Area PFLAG chapter continues to work toward an inclusive and just society that accepts each individual--regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity and expression.
PFLAG NEEDS YOU!

The New Orleans chapter is proud to be a part of the PFLAG National organization. With local affiliates in more than 500 communities across the United States and abroad and over 200,000 members, PFLAG is the largest grassroots-based family organization of its kind. It is a nonprofit organization and is not affiliated with any religious or political institutions.
In communities across the U.S., PFLAG members have made a difference by speaking at school board meetings, writing letters to their legislators, and talking with their neighbors and co-workers to educate and advocate.
Our chapter is funded entirely by members' dues and donations from concerned individuals and foundations. We do not receive funds from the national organization.
I am asking you to renew your membership or to officially become a member of PFLAG New Orleans by paying your dues via our secure site.
Fifteen dollars of every membership is dedicated to support the efforts of the PFLAG National Organization.
Benefits include a twice-yearly copy of the PFLAGpole newsletter, access to significant discounts on publications, discounted registration to PFLAG national conventions, and the opportunity to be included in PFLAG's voice on Capitol Hill. In addition, you will receive our chapter's monthly electronic newsletter, the Banner.
Because of your courage and generosity, PFLAG will be able to continue its important work in the New Orleans area.
President, PFLAG New Orleans
