Community Announcements Guidelines

We love lifting up the good work that other social change organizations or partners are doing in California! Let us know if you wish to share a community event or call out with our families. 

Announcements must be submitted in the correct length and format at least one week in advance of our e-newsletter distribution. All listings are free of charge and may be submitted via this form or email.

Events and announcements must be: 

  • No more than 65 words, including title, location, address, date, and contact info. 
  • Specifically and intentionally relevant to LGBTQ families with children and/or prospective LGBTQ parents
  • From California-based partners and/or accessible in California.

Please submit: 

  • Total word count: No more than 65 words, including title, location, address, date, contact info, and any registration links, hyperlinks, webpages that you wish to see included. 
  • Deadline: Please submit content at least a week in advance to ensure it will run. Our e-newsletters are distributed biweekly, usually the 1st and 3rd week of the month, on Tuesday mornings. We have recently changed our distribution from 1st and 15th of every month. 
  • Distribution limit: Events can be distributed up to 3 times. For events far in advance, please specify which dates you would like the event to run in our e-newsletter. 

All community events are listed as a courtesy. Submitting a short description early will increase the likelihood your announcement will run. Submitting the same announcement multiple times does not increase the likelihood of its inclusion. Please note that OFC is not responsible for editing partners’ submissions (errors, typos, etc) and that we reserve the right not to publish announcements for any reason.
