We Stand Together Summit

PSA featuring local Youth
PSA featuring local Adult Allies
45% of LGBTQIA+ youth seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year.
LGBTQIA+ youth who felt high social support from their family reported attempting suicide at less than half the rate of those who felt low or moderate social support.
Fewer than 1 in 3 transgender and nonbinary youth found their home to be gender-affirming.
