Looking Ahead

Donor Survey 

In the spirit of we try and we learn, we are introducing our new donor survey. This survey helps us to learn more about our donors, their giving motivations and trends, and how to improve our engagement with donors that give to our affiliate. Help us prepare for the new year with your feedback if you’ve donated!  

Promotora Expansion  

PPGC is expanding our Promotora program in partnership with Latinx organizations throughout Louisiana. We’re working to train local New Orleanian Latinx leaders using the Promotora created VOICES (Volunteer, Open, Inclusive, Community Education on Sexuality) Program, which was created this year by our Promotora team.  Our sessions are delivered to audiences of 5+ people, virtually or in-person (when it is safe to do so). Find out more information by reaching out to our team at [email protected].  

2023 Legislative Session  

Louisiana’s 2022 Legislative Session will convene on Monday, April 10, 2023 and we are already preparing. We need our supporters now more than ever this year as prepare for a session full of action. Stay tuned for more details on events, advocacy trainings and information on bills we’re supporting.  

Men in the Movement 

PPGC seeks to provide a safe space for young men of color to consider a gender-equitable future of manhood, discuss issues that are important to them, and to empower them to become advocates and leaders in their communities. The Louisiana Strategic Partnership Team participated in a cultural sensitivity training to address biases toward and develop skills to effectively provide programming for individuals who identify as young men of color. Going into 2023, we are excited to welcome two eager interns to help develop and implement programming. Stay tuned for more details.

Have a Happy New Year! We will see you in 2023!
