SAAF invites the community to nominate members and allies of the LGBTQ+ community prior to January 21st when the nomination period closes.

SAAF’s LGBTQ+ Initiatives unites the LGBTQ+ community of Southern Arizona and transforms lives. By working to eliminate the stigma of LGBTQ+ youth and adults alike, SAAF is leading the way for the LGBTQ+ community.
