We envision economic and social equity for all Southern Arizonans. The Chamber’s values are:

The Tucson LGBT Chamber was started in the early 1990s as the Community Business Association, a private group to provide a place for LGBT business people to gather and find mutual support through networking. Over the years they have grown their mission to include advocacy, education, and increased visibility for LGBT business issues within the larger community. In 2019, they launched the Tucson LGBT Chamber of Commerce Foundation, a501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to supporting the educational goals of LGBT people through scholarships, mentorships, and programming.
