For over 10 years, Out4S has been a leader in mobilizing the LGBTQ+ community for social and environmental action, in pursuit of a fabulous planet. Recognizing the scale and pace of accelerating threats to our communities and planet, Out4S made a bold shift.
We're proud to announce our new focus: providing a platform for co-creating climate resilience and environmental justice by and for LGBTQIA+ communities.
Following the leadership and principles of environmental justice and climate justice movements, Out4S' new strategic plan is committing to four sub-missions:
Representation: OUT4S promotes equal representation, visibility, and recognition of LGBTQ2S+ folks in the climate movement and governance.
Participation: OUT4S builds capacity and readiness for LGBTQ2S+ grassroots organizations by providing fiscal sponsorship, connections, and resources.
Redistribution: OUT4S supports LGBTQ2S+ communities by promoting food, energy, and water security & land access through mutual aid, micro grants, and climate disaster risk management strategies.
Transformation: OUT4S aligns with movements for queer and transgender liberation and ecological justice, including calls for climate reparations, land rematriation, food sovereignty, and bodily autonomy.
The new strategic plan will be released in early 2023.
