Many people are feeling anxious about what is ahead for our community. Lots of other emotions to deal with as well. The key is that we have built a community to help us move forward together. Stronger Together. Let’s continue to be there for each other. Let’s go out of our way to connect with each other, but especially to those who may be more isolated.
We’ve faced tough times and stood up to bullies before and we can do it again. We will get through this with the help, support, and love of each other.
Kitsap Pride is working on a Winter Pride event. Let us know what you feel you need and what we can do to help as we move forward.
Take some inspiration from the words of Martin Luther King Jr: “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”
