Member Engagement and Leadership
Since the Audre Lorde Project first opened its doors in the summer of 1996, volunteers have been essential in building every aspect of ALP from setting up computer systems, to developing ALP's newsletter, to organizing events, to setting the direction and vision for ALP's work.
During the spring of 2010 The Audre Lorde Project launched a new membership program that provides a way for you to take part in the work of ALP whether you have a lot of time or just a little.
