New "Rainbow Committee" Forming for LGBTQ Families, Staff, and Allies
Mon, Jan 24 12:39pm

Dear PS20 community, 

 

After conversations with the PTA, JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion Committee), the SLT, and Ms. Barbera, we are forming a "Rainbow Club" to support LGBTQ students, families, staff, allies, and our general PS20 community regarding relevant issues. 

 

Our goals are to:

- Create a network for LGBTQ+ and questioning students, families, staff and allies to support each other.

- Educate the whole PS20 community about LGBTQ+ issues

- Be a safe place for discussions (resources, events, stories) around LGBTQ+ issues

 

The Rainbow Club plans to have themed monthly meetings, a Konstella group, and an awareness campaign or event in Pride Month (June). 

 

Participation is open to everyone on a voluntary basis. If you are interested in learning more, you can:

  • Attend our first meeting (held on Zoom) on Thursday, January 27th at 3PM. It will be a planning meeting: Mr Chung and Ms Iseult will explain our project in further details, and all PS20 community members are invited to share ideas and help shape the club so that it reflects our needs and vision as a community. 
  • Join the Rainbow Club committee on Konstella (in the left menu bar, click on "Committees" in green. You should see a committee called “Rainbow Committee”.)

 

Starting in February, the Rainbow Club will meet monthly on the fourth Thursday of the month.
