yffn mission statement
To promote respect and understanding for all people, especially in regard to sexual orientation and gender identity.

   Your Family, Friends, and Neighbors, Inc. is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) grass-roots organizing corporation that promotes respect, understanding, and tolerance for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender  people. YFFN provides a voice in Idaho for gay, lesbian,  bisexual and transgender human rights issues by exposing and reducing anti-gay hatred and violence that is sweeping across the country. Your Family, Friends, and Neighbors also opposes bigotry, violence, and discrimination against all persons. Participation in Your Family, Friends, and Neighbors, Inc. is open to all persons dedicated to developing recognition of the diversity inherent in our community, and to those who oppose organized discriminatory activities.

   Your Family, Friends, and Neighbors, Inc. will accomplish those goals through: organizing an annual gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual pride / freedom rally, march, and festival in Boise, while simultaneously coordinating pride / freedom events across the state; sponsoring National Coming Out Day activities, including display advertisements celebrating the uniqueness of the bisexual, lesbian, transgender, and gay community; producing educational events and media campaigns that foster awareness of discrimination against gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual people, anti-gay violence, and the impact of hetero-sexism and homophobia on individuals and families; monitoring anti-gay bigotry in the media and the community; and promoting institutional change in both the public and private sectors.
