June is LGBTQ Pride month.  As Pride 2020 comes to a close, we remember that no one is free until we are all free and recognize that Pride is most powerful when it’s intersectional.

Pride is rooted in justice and expresses itself most fully in resistance to oppression, in the fight against racism, poverty, imprisonment, and violence.
Pride is solidarity. Pride is love.
