Guest MINDSETTER™ Worcester Pride: Reaffirming Our Mission
Sunday, November 13, 2016
Election night was long and for many of us the results were disheartening. After a campaign full of divisive and hurtful rhetoric, many of us wonder where we are headed as a country.
Worcester Pride reaffirms its mission to:
Recognize, promote and unify the Central Massachusetts LGBTQ+ community, allies, and supporters. We welcome participation and volunteers for community goals and a variety of sponsored events. We celebrate those who make specific strides to enhance the visibility of Worcester’s LGBTQ+ community. The participation of all, regardless of age, creed, gender, gender identity, HIV status, national origin, disability, race, religion or sexual orientation is welcome.
We ask individuals and families, employees and business owners, students and teachers to maintain the momentum in our efforts for Social Justice by:
- Advocating for the most vulnerable in our community, including people of color, youth, transgender people, religious and ethnic groups, immigrants, and people living in poverty;
- Defending our Constitution and its bedrock promises of equality;
- Using all the tools at our disposal on the local and national level – to safeguard the hard fought gains of the modern civil rights movement;
- Reaching out to every Community member to come together for social justice.
Worcester Pride is here, and we will continue to actively work for all of us.
Please join us!
Let us not grow weary. Let us not lose heart. We are resilient, we are brave, and we are strong.
