CenterLink’s theme for the 2012 LGBT Center Awareness Day is “Because Great LGBT Communities Begin With Great LGBT Community Centers"
Centers continue to build, unite, and empower the LGBT community by offering services including; social services, mental health counseling, cultural programs, recreational activities, libraries, educational programs, support groups, youth support, elder support, computer access, and care and treatment (just to name a few).
What is LGBT Center Awareness Day (CAD)?
Created by CenterLink: The Community of LGBT Centers, Center Awareness Day is an annual day of awareness promoting the vital services offered by community centers and the central role they play in local communities.
On September 15 (every year), CenterLink will hold “LGBT Center Awareness Day”, a national day of action focused on awareness around the work of LGBT community centers everywhere. The day was planned to help bring national attention to the Community Center Movement within the LGBT movement, which serves over 40,000 people weekly, and highlight the ways that people can get involved or utilize their local centers.
