The purpose of The Dandelion Project is to empower better understanding and acceptance of humanity’s diversity by embracing and promoting the vision of one community for all individuals. By providing an open, safe, and inclusive space dedicated to discovering and embracing one’s own individuality, the Project is committed to the continuing process of combating the fear that contributes to society’s divisive biases and prejudices. In the quest to further diminish harmful fears and misconceptions, The Dandelion Project sponsors and promotes an educational and outreach agenda designed to serve individuals regardless of where they may be in their own personal journey. The Project is a dynamic, responsive and collaborative effort highlighted by its ever-increasing array of educational programs, resources, support and advocacy.
Discrimination is very much alive in the lives of many young people and adults in the LGBTQ+ community. This type of injustice produces depression, self-hate, and even suicide. This is what we hope to combat with The Dandelion Project. Join us in this crusade to change the face of, not only Mississippi, but every community plagued with this epidemic.
The #wearecampaign was created in order to challenge society's perception of the LGBTQ+ community; to challenge society's labels. The driving force behind this effort is to tear away these labels and, in doing so, reshape previously held ideals of "community." No more gay community, no more straight community... ONE community...OUR community. Working together to enhance OUR lives and OUR world. What we want to represent to our fellow humans is that We Are your sons, We Are your daughters, We Are your mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers, We Are your neighbors, We Are your friends.
We are dedicated to mending the gap and promoting understanding. We Are The Dandelion Project Project.
Each Wednesday at 6:30 PM we have a meeting. We have a time of fun followed by a time of discussion.
