Pride Month: Stand Up, Show Up, and Speak Up

As we begin this Pride Month of June, ACT stands alongside our LGBTQI+ team members, family, educators, students, and community to celebrate and affirm their importance, identity, and continuing contributions. Now more than ever, as we see challenges that could undermine and harm our community, we believe it’s important to stand firm in our conviction that everyone deserves a safe and welcoming place to learn and work and grow. 

We believe that Pride isn’t simply one month, but a year-round commitment to ensuring that members of the LGBTQI+ community are celebrated and supported. And so, in the spirit of trailblazer Harvey Milk, who said, “We will not win our rights by staying quietly in our closets,” we at ACT:

  • come together with the LGTBQI+ community as allies, advocates, and champions; 
  • affirm the goals and aspirations of students, educators, and others whose voices must be heard and amplified in our education system — we see you and you matter; and
  • celebrate our LGBTQI+ team members who work tirelessly in service to ACT’s mission of education and workplace success for all.
This month is time to stand up, show up, and speak up — we at ACT commit to that in celebration of Pride. Happy Pride Month!
