1986: Expanded LGBT programs

Building on its support of the LGBT movement in the 1960s and 70s—when AFSC worked against violence and disempowering policies—in the 1980s AFSC expanded its programs to better serve gays and lesbians in local communities. In 1986, the Seattle and Portland LGBT programs were created, and in the following years AFSC worked to educate its staff and others who work with gay youth.
