Can you believe it's been almost a year?
This June 28 will be the first anniversary of the reinstatement of the IYG license plates at the Indiana BMV. Not only is that a great milestone for the nation's first LGBT youth license plate, but it means this year could be the first renewal for some people to be able to get the IYG license plate without fear of losing it. IYG gets $25 donation from every IYG license plate in the state of Indiana. It is important that supporters currently with plates make sure to renew the plate for another year and help us spread the word so more of our friends and family can show their support.
The donations received from the specialty plate support programs and services to Gay Straight Alliances throughout Indiana. Over 770 youth in 16 counties were served in 2013 through capacity building, youth leadership summits, and anti-bullying information. These youth need a place to feel safe and finally feel okay about being who they are.
I'd like to invite you to stop by IYG and take a tour of our activity center and meet some of the staff and youth. We are always proud to show off our activity center and have you meet the youth that you are supporting! Just give us a call and let us know that you'd like to visit. Also, we invite you to share with your Facebook friends the importance of supporting our community through purchasing and proudly displaying the IYG license plate.
