Get Involved

Qommunity is our platform for members of the QLGBT, HIV+ communities, and our allies and co-conspirators to come together to advocate for our collective needs and to defend ourselves and each other against oppression. It informs and inspires to care for ourselves, each other, and to achieve positive change to remove barriers to housing stability for our communities and for society as a whole. We claim creating space for self-advocacy and empowerment as an integral component of individual and community healing and resiliency.

Register to Vote

Q Foundation accepts the political and economic environment that either fosters or hinders housing stability for our communities. It is our responsibility to engage the political process to nurture the best climate for the individuals we serve to thrive within.

 Educating our members in the policy arena is a core component of our work in mobilizing people to advocate for their own best needs. Part of that member engagement is developing informed voters.

 Why voting matters: Our housing stability is inextricably linked to policy. Land use policy that can either preserve affordable housing or demolish it. Our values and polices are expressed through the budget process, that can either take away income for seniors and disabled SSI recipients or add to it.
