Our Vision

Our Mission

Our Puropse

Our vision is to build a community where all people are valued and respected for who they are. 

Our mission is to create a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for the LGBTQIA+ community and allies in the West Georgia area through community outreach, education, advocacy, and engagement. 

Our purpose is to provide comprehensive support for the LGBTQIA+ community in West Georgia, to empower them to live authentically and express themselves freely without fear of discrimination or judgment and to foster confidence and pride in their identity, their community and their shared cultural history. 

Nuestra Historia: Todo comenzó con un picnic.

En julio de 2021, Lucy creó el grupo de Facebook Carrollton Rainbow.  La idea original era tener un grupo privado de redes sociales para que los miembros y aliados de la comunidad LGBTQIA+ tuvieran un espacio seguro para discutir temas, planificar eventos y hacer amigos.  A medida que el grupo crecía orgánicamente y el mundo comenzaba a normalizarse, algunas personas se reunieron para discutir la posibilidad de hacer realidad PRIDE.

En octubre de 2022, Carrollton Rainbow Inc se convirtió en una organización oficial sin fines de lucro 501c3 y el segundo evento PRIDE de Carrollton se llevó a cabo con la ayuda de nuestros amigos de 4AM Coffee Roasters Cafe y algunos patrocinios de la iglesia para cubrir los costos.

Lo que comenzó como una simple idea para un picnic comunitario ahora se ha convertido en una visión para construir una comunidad donde todas las personas sean valoradas y respetadas por quienes son y con la misión de crear un entorno seguro, solidario e inclusivo para la comunidad LGBTQIA+ y sus aliados en Carrollton. , área de Georgia a través de extensión comunitaria, educación, promoción y participación.
