About Us

Our Mission:

The Diversity Center Santa Cruz County is building an equitable community where LGBTQ+ people thrive.

Our Vision:

To have a healthy, vibrant, and diverse LGBTQ+ community in Santa Cruz County, free from fear, hatred, and prejudice and safe in their persons, work, and homes; with a spirit of collaborative leadership that fosters the sharing of resources, talents, and gifts with each other and with the greater community.

Community:

Each year, The Diversity Center reaches approximately 10,000 individuals that we serve directly through our onsite programs, outreach and education events, our work with school-based Gay/Straight Alliances, and our Triangle Speakers program. We fulfill our mission to build an equitable community where LGBTQ+ people thrive by:

  • Developing LGBTQ+ youth leaders in local middle and high schools, who help teach acceptance and promote positive LGBTQ+ messages to their peers
  • Creating connections, building community, and reducing isolation among LGBTQ+ seniors, veterans, youth, and the Latinx community
  • Teaching acceptance and providing support for transgender individuals
  • Educating the community at-large about key legislative issues that impact LGBTQ+ rights and equality
