Safety Tips for PFLAG Chapters: Strategies for Protecting Communities from Threats of Violence Recording and Training Toolkit

PFLAG members and supporters were horrified and angered about the recent shooting at Club Q in Colorado. But that incident wasn’t isolated. According to the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project, Anti-LGBT+ mobilization — including demonstrations, political violence, and offline propaganda activity like flyering — increased by over four times from 2020 to 2021. PFLAG leaders nationwide have reported an increase in harassment and threats to their chapters and LGBTQ+ events in their communities. Many have asked for guidance on how to avoid, prepare for, and respond to these behaviors.

Remember: If you are in immediate danger, call 911.

One of our key goals is to help you take the information that you learned in this session and use it to make your chapter stronger and more effective. To do that, we’ve created this page to provide you with tools, resources, and references to materials mentioned in the workshop. As always, the PFLAG National staff is here to help. If you have any questions, comments, or just need some good advice, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
