To Better Understand, Inc.
Visit Our Website

Since children are increasingly self-identifying at earlier ages now, this raises their risk of victimization and other health concerns that could affect their development in the long run. In the context of families, cultures, and faith organizations, we offer various initiatives to prevent health and mental health dangers for LGBTQ+ youth and adults. We assist those who identify within the community and we educate families, friends, co-workers from all backgrounds on how to support those who identify within the LGBTQ+ community with our three core values: education, research, and advocacy.

Technically, To Better Understand has been around since late 2018. Before it became a 501(c)(3) organization in 2021, our founder, Amari McGee would frequently speak with family members and/or friends of LGBTQ-identified individuals who wanted a better understanding of their family member or friend, but didn't know where to start. Amari navigated and taught those who would reach out to him on how to properly support their loved ones, provide fundamentals of the LGBTQ+ community, and even tips on how to become better allies.

As the number of request grew each year, by 2021, Amari knew that he had to expand. After a few naming rebrands, To Better Understand was officially born.
