  • No new HIV infections
  • Ongoing coordination among all LGBTQ+-serving organizations
  • Civic institutions where LGBTQ+ people are equitably represented and engaged
  • LGBTQ+ older adults having affirming housing, long term care, and social activities where they are safe and welcome
  • Sacramento Pride as the largest celebration of diversity in the region
