NEPA Affirming Guide

The NEPA-affirming guide was developed in 2021 to support those in the LGBT+ community and those who want to endorse inclusive environments. The NEPA-affirming guide also serves businesses that want to create a safe, professional, and inclusive environment. This guide is focused on the prevention of harm and increase of support to the local community. Many resources included are LGBT+ owned and operated.

If you are a business or organization that would like to be included on this resource guide or have questions regarding the guide please contact Hope Krashnak at akrashnak@protonmail.com or 570-392-3073.
