Review for Our Family Coalition, San Francisco, CA, USA
Our Family Coalition supports LGBTQ families in the Bay Area and beyond through programs for parents and prospective parents, trainings for educators, and advocacy. Their services are both specialized (example: Womb to Grow a trans inclusive annual event for people trying to conceive) and inclusive (example: intersectional programming for educators on developing inclusive schools). I have volunteered leading community workshops for OFC for more than a decade. The workshops are well attended and safe places to talk about issues related to donor conception and raising donor-conceived kids. I am especially excited about OFC’s work to bring education about lgbtq people and issues into all CA classrooms. In 1980 I was an 11 year old kid with a lesbian mom in CA public school—nothing about my family or people like my parent was discussed in school. I am grateful that now my 11 year old son is having a different experience that will only continue to improve thanks to the work of Our Family Coalition.
