HJR-6 UPDATE: HJR-6 is the proposed state consitutional ban of same-sex marriage in Indiana. It's very likely that the bill will be introduced in this legislative session. Indianapolis PFLAG is working with Freedom Indiana to defeat this terrible bill. To learn more about HJR-6 and this campaign, go to http://www.freedomindiana.org/
NATIONAL PFLAG CONVENTION: Have you ever attended a national convention? This is a wonderful way to meet other PFLAG members from around the country, participate in exciting educational workshops, and get new ideas for programs and events for your chapter.

INDY PFLAG TO RECEIVE NATIONAL PFLAG AWARD IN EDUCATION
Indianapolis PFLAG is proud to share that we are the recipient of the National 2013 PFLAG Chapter Award for Education. From Jean-Marie Navetta at National PFLAG - "this is an award that is decided upon by an independent review committee of PFLAGers across the country who had the opportunity to evaluate many powerful projects being done by chapters. With several dozen submissions, decisions were challenging, and we congratulate you on the honor." We have received this award for our collaboration with Rev. Marie Siroky and ICON in the "You Have A Purpose Project" Facebook page. This Project was created in response to a teacher's statement that "homosexuals have no purpose." We invite people and groups to submit videos to let LGBT youth know that we care and that they do have a purpose!
INDIANAPOLIS PFLAG is one of 9 PFLAG chapters in Indiana. Every month we participate in a State Conference call so we can share what our chapters are doing and obtain new ideas from each other. These calls take place the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
We meet on the second Wednesday of every month, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Indiana Youth Group at Binford Blvd. and 46th Street. Click here to view a map.
Wednesday, December 11th
Please join us - all are welcome - parents and families of LGBT children, Straight Allies, and LGBT people! No one is made to feel he or she must speak--we all know the value of quiet listening. And no one who speaks is expected to reveal more than he or she cares to. But in the warm, supportive atmosphere, many find they can put troubling thoughts and fears into words for the first time, and receive reassurance, guidance, and just plain facts.
PFLAG is not affiliated with Indiana Youth Group.
