{ACCEPTANCE} “It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” ~Audre Lorde

Many thanks to Kathryn Young, an Associate Professor at Metropolitan State University of Denver, for yesterday afternoon’s training on the issues surrounding microaggressions for our staff. She provided excellent information and gave us tips on how we can minimize the negative impacts that microaggressions can have within the TGP community. (She finished her training with this wonderful quote from Audre Lorde.)

Over the last thirty years, TGP has done the work of recognizing, accepting, and celebrating the differences within our community. With regular trainings like this one by Dr. Young, our staff will continue to lead the charge of acceptance.
