The mission of the National LGBTQ Anti-Poverty Action Network is to end poverty in the U.S., advocate for economic justice, and pursue solutions to economic, racial, gender and social disparities as they specifically impact low-income LGBTQ people. We seek to do this through research, organizing, learning, public education, and advocacy in coalition with organizations and individuals working within and outside of the LGBTQ movement.

The Network is a member-based coalition of over 100 organizations and individuals working in the LGBTQ, anti-poverty, and anti-hunger movements. A volunteer Planning Committee coordinates the Network’s monthly calls and in-person meetings, which are held twice a year The Network is organized into three different subgroups: advocacy, public education, and research. Members collaborate on policy actions, educational activities, organizing and educational initiatives to increase awareness about and action on LGBTQ poverty.
