In honor of Wednesday's Inauguration, today is the Day of Service! (Don't know what this is? Look below.) We're doing our part by highlighting three of the many LGBTQ+ organizations doing important work for the community. We're highlighting Immigration Equality, Lambda Legal, and True Colors United. Learn more about these organizations below the image, go to their websites to explore more. From January 18th - 20th, we're asking our members to make a donation large or small to help this important work continue. The links to donate are below.
What is the Day of Service?
The Biden Inaugural Committee has a week long Inauguration Celebration to bring us together. Today, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Committee has a Day of Service. Socially Distanced or virtual events are taking part around the world for Americans to give back. Interested in getting involved more in your home state or in generally?

About Immigration Equality:
"For over 25 years, we have worked to secure safe haven, freedom to live openly, and equality for individuals and families in our community. Through direct legal services, policy advocacy, and impact litigation, we advocate for immigrants and families facing discrimination based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status." - Immigration Equality
About Lambda Legal:
"Founded in 1973, Lambda Legal is the oldest and largest national legal organization whose mission is to achieve full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and everyone living with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy work. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, [they] do not charge our clients for legal representation or advocacy, and [they] receive no government funding. [They] depend on contributions from supporters around the country." - Lambda Legal
About True Colors United:
"True Colors United implements innovative solutions to youth homelessness that focus on the unique experiences of LGBTQ young people. In the United States, 4.2 million youth experience homelessness each year, with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth 120% more likely to experience homelessness than their non-LGBTQ peers. True Colors United is committed to changing that." - True Colors United
