New online tool helps families access information, resources, and support
Provincetown, MA — Family Equality today announced the launch of a new virtual resource called Path2FamilyEquality to help LGBTQ+ parents, trans youth and families, and allies navigate the challenging political climate. The resource was developed in response to ongoing attacks against LGBTQ+ families—including more than 300 anti-LGBTQ+ state bills introduced in 2022, and the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, threatening additional fundamental freedoms.
“Our families are facing near-impossible realities,” says Stacey Stevenson, CEO of Family Equality. “They’re concerned about the security of their marriages, access to critical healthcare, and the safety and well-being of their children. They’re desperate and disheartened—and many are moving or already have moved to more affirming communities. They need quick and easy answers, especially in times of crisis, and that’s where Path2FamilyEquality comes in. It provides a safe, online tool to deliver resources into people’s hands fast. Our families need the necessary resources to stay informed, create a plan, and find hope.”
Created in partnership with Clockwork, a creative digital agency based in Minneapolis, MN, Path2FamilyEquality features include:
- Answers to LGBTQ+ families’ most pressing questions, written by experts
- Information on the current legal landscape for trans youth and families, including links to state maps
- Resources for families looking to relocate to affirming communities or advocate for their child in their home state
- Support and links for LGBTQ+ families accessing abortion services
- Opportunities for peer-to-peer connection
“We’re proud to be a part of this incredible resource for families who are feeling abandoned by legislators, and need a repository of information and guidance,” says Nancy Lyons, CEO of Clockwork. Lyons has supported and worked with Family Equality for 13 years, currently serving on the Board and leading her team in the development of the site. “We hope others will join this effort to preserve and protect everyone’s human rights.”
