Founded in 1973, PFLAG is the first and largest organization dedicated to supporting, educating, and advocating for LGBTQ+ people and their families. PFLAG’s network of hundreds of chapters and more than 325,000 members and supporters works to create a caring, just, and affirming world for LGBTQ+ people and those who love them.
Jackson Alder is the Senior Online Community Coordinator at PFLAG National. Their primary responsibility is developing, building, and maintaining online communities that offer immediate peer-to-peer support, connect parents, families, friends, allies, and the LGBTQ+ community to PFLAG resources, chapter meetings, and PFLAG Connects: Communities meetings.
Based in Fort Collins, Colorado, Jackson has over a decade of experience in communications, marketing, social media, and graphic design. Prior to PFLAG National, they worked as the Director of Communications for a local United Way chapter in Colorado. They’re excited to bring their knowledge and skills to PFLAG National and serve the LGBTQ+ community and their families.
Originally from Jacksonville, Florida, Jackson attended Savannah College of Art and Design and the University of North Florida, and has a bachelor in fine arts degree in photography. In their downtime, they enjoy fostering kittens, reading, and leisurely day hiking with their partner.
