Our Safe Space - March
Happy Women's History Month! I also wanted to remind everyone that March 31st is International Transgender Day of Visibility. This is an annual awareness day, dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments of transgender and gender nonconforming people while raising awareness of the work that still needs to be done to achieve trans justice.
As Alok Vaid-Menon said, "Man and woman are two of many stars in a constellation that do not compete but amplify one another's shine. There are as many ways to be a woman as there are women. There are as many ways to be a man as there are men. There are as many ways to be nonbinary as there are nonbinary people."
Attached is the March Calendar to share. There are a few events we would like to highlight:
- Cooking Night will be happening Thursday 3/17 at 4:30 pm
- Caregiver Jam will be happening Wednesday 3/22 at 6 pm
- Open Closet will be happening Thursday 3/23 at 3 pm
- OSP will be closed Friday 3/31 for Chavez-Huerta Day + International Transgender Day of Visibility
