Voices for Equality - Identity's Advocacy Program
Welcome to the home of Identity Advocacy Team. Our purpose is to advocate the rights of gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender individuals for an inclusive community for all.
The Advocacy Program is an ongoing proactive effort to inform Alaskans that the GLBT community plays a valuable role in creating a better environment for all of us. The Identity Advocacy Team is a respected and recognized team who individually and collectively educates the larger Alaskan community to build GLBT equality. The team facilitates broad-based strategies by modeling proactive advocacy and is committed to sustainable participation and visibility.
Through education and partnership, we can develop alliances and understanding to expand our voice in the Alaskan community. We hope you will be interested in joining our efforts. This site is a open forum for discussion of issues as well as a tool to assist in advocacy efforts.
Members of the Identity Advocacy Team met with the owners and general manager of Humpy’s to draw up a plan to educate their staff, create a nondiscrimination policy, and implement procedures in all their Anchorage establishments. The meeting will result in their business becoming the model of best practices for LGBTQ awareness, customer service standards and equal protections in Alaska.
Identity is happy that Humpy’s has stepped forward to work with us. We are optimistic that this conversation could lead to expanding progressive nondiscrimination policies among many other Anchorage businesses, and we hope to partner with others using this as a model.
