Mission Statement

Our History Our first physical location was a very small room with enough space for one volunteer, a phone, and a brochure rack.  In the past 14 years we've grown exponentially.  The Rainbow Center now provides space for many groups to meet in our comfortable meeting space.  We have a lending library, resource table, an office area for our employees, public use computers, and free wi-fi, and advocacy for victims of crime. We work with LGBTQA individuals from all over WA state providing resources, advocacy, information, and education.   Who We Are Today The Rainbow Center's mission is to eliminate discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity by providing education, resources, information, advocacy, and opportunities for empowerment to individuals and organization with the south Puget Sound area. We find our activities falling into three general categories. Educate - working to provide information to all individuals and groups about the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersexed, Questioning/Queer and Allied individuals community in an effort to eliminate harmful stereotypes Advocate - working to ensure that Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersexed, Questioning/Queer and Allied individuals receive the same basic human rights as all other citizens of pierce County, the State of Washington and the United States. Celebrate - working to acknowledge pride in who we are as valuable creative members of a diverse population in this county, state, and country.
