Dear PS 107 Community,
The Diversity Committee would like to wish our PS 107 community “Happy Pride Month!”
During this time of change it is so important to honor love and the voices that have worked and continue to raise awareness of our diversity and humanity. June 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the first Pride march, which was held in New York City on June 28, 1970 to remember the 1969 Stonewall Riots.
We are grateful to all activists-- those of the past and those who continue to advocate for the civil rights and protection of trans, femme, and LGBTQIA people today.
