YOU ARE NOT ALONE
As a parent, as a family member, or as a member or ally of the LGBTQ+ community, PFLAG Greeley is here to support you. We work to keep families in loving relationships by helping them understand and affirm their gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or non-binary family members. We provide allies with the tools to stand up to harassment and discrimination against their LGBTQ+ friends and family.

SAFE SPACE GUIDELINES
What is a safe space? A Safe Space is a place where anyone can relax and be able to fully express, without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or unsafe on account of biological sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or ecpression, cultural background, religious affiliation, age, or physical or mental ability. It is a place where the rules guard each person's self-respect and dignity and strongly encourage everyone to respect others.
To enable safe space, PFLAG offers these guidelines:
What happens in PFLAG, stays in PFLAG - but with a slight modification for bringing home what we have learned. Therefore, we state, "What is said here stays here, what is learned here can leave here."
SHARE THE AIR
Keep comments relevant so everyone can participate and strive for a balance between listening and speaking.
- Hear what people are saying. Don't interrupt.
- Listen deeply. Listen to understand. Listen for the emotions behind the words.
- Acknowledge what you hear. Sometimes it is helpful to repeat back what you think you heard.
Demonstrate respect for cultural differences and diversity of views. We are all equal with different perspectives and lenses.
