Supporting equity for all families and children.


Our Mission

Our Family Coalition

Our mission: Our Family Coalition advances equity* for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) families with children through support, education, and advocacy.

Our vision: We seek to create an inclusive and just world where all LGBTQ families with children have visibility and opportunities to thrive as valued participants in our schools, institutions, and communities.

Our theory of change: Our Family Coalition brings a unique and progressive voice of families to the LGBTQ movement. We cultivate community-based leadership among LGBTQ families and strong partnerships with our allies in California, to advance social justice and make our nation a more respectful and inclusive place for all.

Our history: Our Family Coalition was formed in 2002 through the merger of two organizations: the East Bay-based Our Family (founded in 1994) and the San Francisco-based All Our Families Coalition (founded in 1996).

*Our Family Coalition believes in equity for all. Equity means just inclusion for all members of society. An equitable society is one where everyone, including LGBT families with children, can fully participate. Our Family Coalition works to remove barriers and create positive conditions that allow members of our community to thrive and prosper.
