Enlightening Yourself to Empower Others

Hello everyone! As this month comes to an end, it’s important that we keep empowerment, especially personal empowerment, at the forefront of our transition into June.

By increasing our feelings of personal empowerment, we will feel more confident in providing authority and power to others. This is particularly important for allies to implement as Pride Month approaches, where both allies and those a part of the LGBTQ+ community can uplift each other & leverage change!
