Be an advocate for legislation

Make your voice heard on state and national legislation of interest to LGBTQ+ equality.

As an all-volunteer organization, PFLAG Portland looks to PFLAG National and our Maine partners in the Equality Community Center who play a leading role in pursuing legislation that furthers the equality and safety of the LGBTQ+ community in Maine and across the country. Being a good ally to our loved ones includes speaking up, and PFLAG Portland encourages its members to reach out to their state and federal legislators on issues of importance.
