HRC field staff was thrilled to be in Phoenix, Arizona, to celebrate the ribbon cutting for the new home of one•n•ten. One•n•ten, an LGBTQ youth center, was set on fire in an arson attack in July.
HRC was honored to support one•n•ten’s journey to their new home. It was an honor to be in Phoenix to celebrate the grand re-opening alongside the local community including Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, one•n•ten Executive Director Linda Elliott and HRC Youth Ambassador Justin Jones.
One•n•ten enhances the lives of LGBTQ young people in Phoenix by providing empowering social and service programs that promote self‐expression, self‐acceptance, leadership development and healthy life choices.
One•n•ten’s work is vital for the local LGBTQ community. In far too many areas across the country, LGBTQ youth lack access to food, shelter, health services that are imperative to their sexual health and well-being.
