About the office
Union County’s Office of LGBTQ Services offers a platform for leadership and collaboration to support equality, and serves as a catalyst for advocacy, awareness and action on current and emerging issues that impact the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals.
Through assessment, research, analysis and strategic collaboration, the Office of LGBTQ Services works in collaboration with all County departments and in partnership with non-government ally and advocacy organizations to develop innovative strategies to help address the needs of the LGBTQ community on issues that include housing, education, health, public safety and community engagement.
The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders honors Transgender Day of Remembrance. Today, in observance of the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance, we honor the memory of the transgender individuals whose lives were lost to acts of anti-transgender violence this year.
This year, under Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados‘s initiatives, the County of Union established the Office of LGBTQ Services to offer support to our LGBTQ community. Learn more about the office by visiting ucnj.org/lgbtq or by contacting Danni Newbury, coordinator of the office at 908-527-4742.
