Staff Snippet: Thanks Family Advocates!

Hi families & friends, Tarah Fleming Photo

We wanted to give a big shout out to parent leaders who volunteered to coordinate this Spring's "Family Advocacy Program" in the East Bay! They worked hard to bring LGBTQ issues to their kids' schools by putting together events, resources, and groups at their schools. We are excited to continue working with them (and YOU) to design inspiring LGBTQ family initiatives for schools in the East Bay this Fall. Please email to get involved.

Our whole team will also be at the Family Garden on June 29th. Please let us know how we can support you in making a difference at your kids' schools! We would love to hear from you. Happy #FamilyPride!
