Pride Month with Kids!

Why do we celebrate Pride?

Since the 1970s, Pride has been observed annually in the month of June. Beyond parades and parties, it is a meaningful time to celebrate the fantastic diversity of our families, friends, and people we care about, and a time to honor their fight for equality. No matter who you are or what your family looks like, know that you are loved and valued just for being you.

Check out the following resources for helping celebrate Pride within your home or classroom.
