JustUsATL is a youth-run organization that provides a safe and affirming space for the Atlanta area’s LGBTQQA youth (13-28). We stive to create a space in which youth members value and empower each other, and treat each other with compassion, dignity, and respect.
JusticeEveryone is a valued member of our society. We commit to confronting oppression based on gender identity and expression, sexuality, race and ethnicity, language, looks and size, religion, class, ability, age, and immigration status.
IntegrityWe will be transparent with our process, supporting the leadership of those most affected by each issue. We will remain open and honest with our community and hold ourselves accountable to its needs.
EmpowermentAs youth forming an organization to meet the needs of our own population, we exercise our right to self-determine and take hold of our own future.
Social ChangeWe dedicate ourselves to structural change within our society such that all spaces will be liberating and affirming for LGBTQQA young people and people of all identities. We strive toward this goal with peer education, group action, and community outreach.
Our Mission and Core Values serve as JustUsATL’s guiding principles. They serve as the foundation of all the we do within our space and in the community.
