The Stonewall Alliance Center of Chico is committed to creating an accepting environment for members of
the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transexual, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, and Ally community
(LGBTQ+) that is open, safe, and inclusive for all people. We provide information, advocacy,
referrals, and support. The Stonewall Alliance Center strives to unite and strengthen individuals and
the community through coordination of community events, activities, and discussions.
The Stonewall Alliance of Chico is an agency serving the Northern Sacramento Valley of California. We
have an eleven-seat Board of Directors (only eight seats are filled) and a variety of volunteer and
staff positions (we have two employees). Committees for fundraising, programming, policy, and audit are
all staffed by board members, program staff, and community members. An executive committee performs the
chief executive functions of the organization. It is composed of the board officers.
Too often gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people face discrimination and rejection because of
who they love. The Stonewall Alliance Center exists to provide a connection to community in an effort to
lessen isolation of, strengthen the spirit of, and give voice to the disenfranchised. Our philosophy
involves the simple concept that labels are only valuable when they are self-applied. We accept and
acknowledge the labels, or lack thereof, you apply to yourself. For young people with questions, it is
critical that understanding comes before labels. The Stonewall Alliance Center straddles the junction
between personal identity and community. Our success and our strength as an organization are due to the
support of our community. Feel free to explore our site and learn about the services offered by The
Center. In the menu bar, you will find categories which identify The Center’s services. Should you
choose the Information and Referral tab, you will find many listings of organizations and services with
easy to follow links. We appreciate your interest and support in our efforts.
