Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Safe OUTside the System

The Safe OUTside the System (SOS) Collective is an anti-violence program led by and for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans, and Gender Non Conforming people of color. We are devoted to challenging hate and police violence by using community based strategies rather than relying on the police. Current work includes the Safe Neighborhood Campaign, Save Starlight, community support, and reclaiming safety.

Population(s) Served

TransJustice is a political group created by and for Trans and Gender Non-conforming people of color. TransJustice works to mobilize its communities and allies into action on the pressing political issues they face, including gaining access to jobs, housing, and education; the need for Trans-sensitive healthcare, HIV-related services, and job-training programs; resisting police, government and anti-immigrant violence.

Population(s) Served

The 3rd Space Support program seeks to work with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two-Spirit, Trans and Gender Non-Conforming People of Color (LGBTSTGNC POC) who struggle with issues around employment, education, health care and immigration status. It is a place to give and receive sustainable support; where creation, invention and innovation will be practiced. We will draw from our resilience to support ourselves.

Within this 3rd Space we hold on to the idea that LGBTSTGNC POC communities have always found ways to support each other and survive outside of systems. The 3rd Space Support program hopes to encourage and create space for these organic methods of community support and community building around employment, education, health care and immigration status to continue.

At the same time, ALP acknowledges that LGBTSTGNC POC community members also engage within systems to find support and get their needs met. Therefore, ALP will also engage with these systems to provide advocacy, resources and referrals for community members around the issues, employment, education, health care and immigration status.

Population(s) Served

Using creativity and ALP’s mission and guiding principles this position will work collaboratively with relevant board, volunteer leaders and staff to coordinate, and evaluate ALP’s membership program. Position includes supervision of relevant staff and volunteers; program development; leadership development; membership outreach, recruitment, and retention; oversight of area(s) budget and representing the organization as needed.
