Celebrating PRIDE Month!
June 9, 2021
June is PRIDE season! Despite many positive changes in our country during the last year related to inclusion and equity, discrimination against LGBTQ people and others is still prevalent. It takes all of us working together everyday to ensure that LGBTQ youth and adults feel welcomed and supported in all of the out-of-school time places in which they spend their time. There are many resources for staff professional development available at: Facing History and Ourselves and GLSEN. Actor George Takei, best known for his role as Mr. Sulu in the original Star Trek television series, noted that we should "live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity." Let's all be in an inclusive and welcoming state of mind this month and beyond!
