Welcome to the Community Alliance & Action Network! “We are here...” for you!
Our Mission is to build community and personal alliances to elevate our quality of life no matter what our sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expressions are.
Our Goals:
  • Maintaining a community center where like minded people can meet. 
  • Providing programs, activities, and entertainments to educate and celebrate our diverse community. Check out our calendar of events and programs.
  • Educating ourselves and others about issues that impact our lives.
  • Advocating for the transgender, gender queer, bisexual, lesbian, and gay community.
  • Creating connections with other groups in Northern Illinois working toward similar goals.
  • Making the suburban Northern Illinois LGBTQ community more visible in a proactive, positive way.
