During the month of June, we are struck by how important it is to uplift and honor Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) voices and stories. Pride Month is a time to celebrate the beauty, strength, and diversity in the LGBTQIA+ community and the importance of activism. And now, more than ever - amidst continued discrimination and relentless attacks to undermine their human rights, it is vital that we tell our students that Pride is an act of self-expression and resistance. Since joining AF Providence Elementary last year, Dana Hurley, Dean of Student Experience, has been doing just that. For this year’s celebration, Dana worked hard to ensure that Pride Month is embedded into every fabric of her school community. Dana, along with the support of her fellow school leaders, created a resource guide. It includes resources, activities, and read-alouds centered around LGBTQIA+ history. Throughout Pride Month, students and teachers alike are encouraged to think about how society has included (or excluded) people with varying identities throughout history and how being an ally can make a difference in their respective communities.
