All are welcome to attend our meetings. They are not just for parents seeking support. We also welcome members of the LGBTQ community who are seeking support and questioning how to come out to family. Allies who want to learn how to better support their LGBTQ+ friends or provide support to others are welcome, as are members of the medical community, social workers, therapists, educators, etc.
We always welcome any suggestions for future speakers. Please email any suggestions to us at email@example.com.

Statement in Response to RI Senate Bill S 2501
We at PFLAG Greater Providence support and affirm that transgender and nonbinary students, like all students, deserve the chance to join a school sport without fear of discrimination. PFLAG Greater Providence strongly opposes Senate Bill 2501, the so-called "Fairness in Women’s Sports Act." This discriminatory bill is a tranparent effort to divide our community. They stoke fear so we turn against our own neighbors, creating problems where they don't exist so they can avoid tackling the real issues that would help Rhode Island families succeed. The truth is, youth have always been targets for discrimination because they are often too young to vote. Yet youth always rise up – and PFLAGers rise with them! We at PFLAG wholeheartedly support the LGBTQ+ community in fighting against the passage of SB 2501. Let kids play.
