LET THE NEW ADVENTURES BEGIN! 

Black Lives Matter, Graduations, Pandemic and Pride

In the words of Beyonce, our young people "have arrived in the middle of a global crisis, a racial pandemic and worldwide expression of outrage at the senseless killing of yet another unarmed Black human being. . . .and still made it." Like Queen Bey, we admire the compassion, tolerance, strength and resilience of our youth. PACT encourages participants to continue to fight for justice and equality. We will be right by their side.

This month's topic: What I Stand For

PACT creates safe, accepting [Zoom] spaces for young people to discuss feelings, conflict and respect. Our curriculum is rooted in awakening the power of self-worth, challenging social norms, and cultivating confidence in communicating boundaries. In the midst of current events, we are questioning our every day attitudes, prejudices, and stereotypes that contribute to unequal treatment of members in our community. Do I judge others because of the clothes they wear, the neighborhood they live, the school they go to, the size of their body, the religion they practice, the color of their skin, or the sexuality they choose? We explore unconscious bias to shine a light on privilege, racism, sexism, ageism, and heterosexism. The first step to change is being aware of our own small-minded nonsense. We don't have to believe everything we think.
