Upcoming Events

1. Help LGBT Homeless Youth in Cleveland

Partners: Human Rights Campaign & The AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland

Let's come together as a community to serve LGBT homeless youth on MLK Day of Service. Taking place in January, MLK Day of Service is a "day on, not a day off." It is a way to transform Dr. King's life and teachings into community action to help bring together people, strengthen communities, and meet national challenges.

One such challenge is homelessness among LGBT youth, who make up to 40% of homeless and at-risk youth. HRC and the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland invite you to partner with us on a service project benefiting LGBT homeless youth in our Cleveland community. As an HRC supporter, you have seen first-hand how we can make an impact when we join together and take action. With the support of partner organizations such as The LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, Family Connections of Northeast Ohio, LGBT Ministries, Equality Ohio, PFLAG Cleveland, TransOhio, and Alpha-Omega, together, we can make a difference.  Monday, January 20  12:00 – 8:00 p.m. @ The AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland  4700 Prospect Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44103.  For more information go here...

The Collaborative to End Human Trafficking and its partners will host the Third Annual Human Trafficking Awareness Program, in observance of National Slavery & Human Trafficking Prevention Month, Monday, January 27, 2014 at 3 p.m. in the Greater Cleveland RTA's Tower City Rapid Station.
