Through outreach initiatives, educational programs, and social events, Four Corners Alliance for Diversity serves community members, from youth to seniors. The organization’s collaborative grassroots efforts provide both support and advocacy to campaigns that strive to affect positive change. In addition, Four Corners Alliance for Diversity’s community relations commitment works to give back to other local organizations, both those groups who offer much-needed support services to the LGBTQ+ community, as well as organizations that address broader issues and concerns of importance to the community-at-large. As a volunteer-based organization, we rely greatly on donations and grant awards to sustain operations.

In fulfilling our mission, Four Corners Alliance for Diversity works to promote equality and social justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) people in the Four Corners area. As an organization that provides education, information, support, community outreach, as well as special events and activities for the community, Four Corners Alliance for Diversity creates alliances between the LGBTQ+ community and the community-at-large, recognizing that many issues are of importance to all of us who reside in the region, and on an even broader scale that champions civil rights.
