|As we all know, LGBTQ+ Pride season is nearly upon us come June 1. The Marin County Board of Supervisors has raised the rainbow Pride Flag for the last two years during the month of June to celebrate the contributions of LGBTQ+ people to the social and economic fabric of the county, and to express their fullest support for our civil rights. We thank them for their leadership. Now, The Spahr Center would like to see this same display of allyship adopted by more of our county’s key institutions. To that end, we have sent letters to all of Marin’s Mayors, as well as to the Presidents of all school districts and their Superintendents, asking them to fly the flag during LGBTQ+ Pride Month. |
Please take a brief moment TODAY to send a simple email encouraging YOUR city or town and YOUR local school district (click here to find your school district), to fly the Pride flag and make Marin more visibly welcoming and supportive of the LGBTQ+ community.
We have included the contact information below. If we as a community reach out to each of these officials. we can persuade them to show that ALL of Marin’s institutions support the LGBTQ+ community. Thank you. Please reach out to the mayor of your town and help us make us proud of Marin!
