We encourage folks to get involved with the vital work that they do in order to spread inclusive messages throughout the region:
- Monroe County United
- Pocono Alliance: Pocono Alliance is a non-profit dedicated to one important goal: to provide essential services and resources for people who need it most. Whether we are promoting early childhood screenings and education, guiding individuals in need to find resources to improve their lives, or helping those in poverty take control of their future, Pocono Alliance is determined to help Monroe County become a community of self-sufficiency, strength, and pride.
- Monroe County Chapter of the NAACP: The mission of the Monroe County Chapter is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination.
