Mission Statement

Affirmation's mission is to provide a forum for gay Mormons to associate with their peers. We seek to meet the needs of persons experiencing frustration or alienation from family, friends, and the Church because of their sexual orientation. In addition to offering assistance during life's occasional struggles, Affirmation provides a lifelong opportunity for service, fun, friendship, personal enrichment, and spiritual growth. When the journey of self-discovery, particularly the process of reconciling our gay selves within the context of our Mormon spiritual and cultural heritage, seems almost more than we can handle, Affirmation offers the opportunity of understanding and support by friends who travel the same path. Additionally, four critical parts of our CASE mission encompass who we are and what we seek: communication, advocacy, safe spaces, and ending the damage caused by the Church's policies and rhetoric. Communication. Advocacy. Safe spaces. Ending the damage. Those four points make up the CASE Affirmation is making with the Church and the community at large. To put it another way: "Affirmation seeks to improve communication and advocate for safe spaces in the Church and in the global community that will end the damage caused by misguided policies towards gay people and their families."

Description

Affirmation currently serves approximately 300 people annually with a budget of less than $50,000. Please visitwww.affirmation.org to learn more.
