Supporting communities

Through Policy

Like our parent organization LGBT Tech, PowerOn advocates for national policies and legislation to support our LGBTQ+ communities nationwide. We focus our advocacy on getting LGBTQ+ centers funded, supported, and recognized for the vital services they provide our communities. We believe getting LGBTQ+ centers the resources they need is one of the best ways to support the people those centers serve on a daily basis.
