Wrapping up PRIDE month!



by Melanie Froemke

June 28, 2024


As we come to the end of PRIDE month, I wanted take some time to reflect on some incredibly meaningful and special experiences. As a practice, we were able to participate in Alexandria's PRIDE celebration- and it was both humbling & envigorating to connect with Alexandria's LGBTQIA+ folx, allies, and family members while there. It was so special to see the new PRIDE crosswalks, the organizations that came out in support of PRIDE, and the connections we made there. It also felt incredibly meaningful to have our newest team member, Katie Volante, with us- as she is an open member of the LGBTQIA+ community.

While at the PRIDE festival, we asked people who came to our booth to leave a note of support for others. These were so amazing- we brought them in and had them decorate our waiting room walls all month. I don't think I can bring myself to take them all down! Since they're so meaningful, I wanted to share them all with you- anyone reading our pages. Please share these notes of encouragement with anyone in your life who might need it.
