Good Morning Black Hills Center for Equality (BHCFE) Supporters,


BHCFE is working on strategic planning to plan for our future and to ensure we are meeting the needs of our community, the LGBTQ+ community of Western South Dakota. We would like feedback from you our supporters and the community we serve. We would like to know what our what we are doing well, how we can improve, and what our organization should focus on the next year. We have created a community survey to accomplish this. You can access the BHCFE community survey here. We want to hear from you. How would you like to be eligible to win a prize simply for filling out the community survey and providing valuable feedback? All individuals who fill out the survey will be eligible to win a $15 Starbucks gift certificate.

Our general membership meeting is coming up soon. This is an excellent opportunity to provide BHCFE more detailed feedback and to find out what events and initiatives we are currently working on. We will also be electing new board members. If you want to shape the future of our organization join us at our general membership meeting Friday, October 13th at 7 p.m. at the Dahl Arts Center.

We are here for our community 24/7. As always you can also email us at, message us on our Facebook page, or call us at (605) 348-3244 if you would like to connect with us. Have a wonderful day!
