MISSION

G.R.A.C.E. is a grassroots organization from Santa Maria Valley made up of diverse people who share in the desire to advocate for sexual and gender diversity on the Central Coast. G.R.A.C.E. works towards advancing the needs of the LGBTQ community and its allies through social networking, advocacy and community coalition building. We work in conjunction with local elected officials, community organizations and local businesses to support LGBTQ inclusion efforts.

VISION

In partnership with Pacific Pride Foundation, we are dedicated to creating more safe spaces for people to be themselves. We strive to maintain an environment of success for individual members through networking, support and development. This goal is obtained through our advocacy work, community education forums, political rallies, and addressing homophobia as it arises in our community. We are students, teachers, community members, gay, straight, transgender, bisexual, questioning, allies, and political activists, advocating for equal rights and equal treatment. We are a focal-point, an anchor, to which the community and many gay-friendly organizations can link together here in the Santa Maria Valley.
