Gamma is an organization of US, working for US; OUR families, OUR community, and OUR rights. I'm proud of the work that we do in LGBT community

The Xi Gamma mission and purpose are clear in who we dedicate ourselves to in every way. By striving daily to make strides, changes, and impacting the LGBT community first and the LGBT community ONLY, we become in the EXact change we wish to see. We wish to see an empowered, educated, and thriving community that is treated equally in every way. This is why Xi Gamma worked tirelessly to create two programs that encompass our beliefs:
LGBT youth make up the largest percentage of run-aways, suicides, premature drug and alcohol use, high school drop outs, and youth whom are out of their homes by force and incarcerated. We must do something to support and help OUR youth in crisis. We mentor LGBT youth at inner city schools, economically disadvantaged schools, homeless youth, incarcerated youth. The We Need You to Survive project works with agencies, shelters, parents, guardians, and any agency who houses these youth. We provide workshops, service opportunities, and mentoring for our must deserving youth. We assist in life skills, survival skills, finding career opportunities, scholarships, and higher education paths. EXplore More

Equality shouldn’t have to be a fight, but LGBT people are indeed in the fight of our lives for every right we’ve obtained. The right to adopt, the right to marry, the right to have families, the right to be employed fairly, our business accepted and promoted fairly, and the right to live, walk the streets, and build happy lives in all ways. As the photo captions above, equality is a human right, but it is a right society has deemed we fight for. Epsilon Xi Gamma, Inc. is dedicated to taking up this fight wherever, however, and with whomever it exists. First educating our people, next challenging our opponents, and lastly galvanizing our base. It is our goal to help the LGBT community realize the power of our unity and the power of our collective voices raised against those who oppose our freedoms.
Ending Our Silent Suffering
Domestic violence is a horrible crime that robs the victim mentally, physically, and emotionally. When faced with this in the LGBT community it becomes an even bigger obstacle because of personal beliefs of law enforcement and lack of all encompassing laws in regards to these crimes in same sex relationships. Gamma wants to change the way we as a community view same sex domestic violence, how victims report and stand against these crimes, and the way law enforcement processes cases. If we can begin to shine a light on this silent danger in our community, we can not only change lives, but save the lives of so many people in our community who need advocates.
