We have a special speaker for our September 3 meeting, none other than PFLAG National President Jean Hodges of Boulder.
Jean is a PFLAG mom, educator, community organizer, citizen lobbyist for equality, and advocate for inclusion in her faith community. She cofounded the PFLAG Boulder chapter and led it for many years. She rose through the national ranks, first as regional director then as the chairperson of the 13-member Regional Directors Council. In that capacity, she also served as the Vice-President of the National Board of Directors. During her many years on the PFLAG National Board, Jean took a leading role on a number of issues, including gender nonconformity and inclusion of the transgender community. She was elected national president in October 2014.
In her presentation on September 3, Jean will describe for us the many programs of the national organization. and its plans for the future. Since dues-paying members of local chapters of PFLAG National, her words will undoubtedly make us feel more involved with the national organization, even when our outreach efforts are directed at the greater Denver community.
The New Families Support Group will meet as usual from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. At 7:30, all will move to the Community Room for announcements, refreshments and the program.
The August 6 meeting will feature the GroundSpark film Straitlaced: How Gender’s Got us All Tied Up.
This film elucidates how popular pressures around gender and sexuality are confining American teens. Their stories reflect a diversity of experiences, demonstrating how gender role expectations and homophobia are interwoven, and illustrating the different ways that these expectations connect with culture, race and class.
The mission of GroundSpark is to create visionary films and dynamic educational campaigns that move individuals and communities to take action for a more just world. Straitlaced is a product for its Respect For All Project, which facilitates development of inclusive, bias-free schools and communities by providing media resources, support and training to youth, educators and service providers.
The New Families Support Group will meet as usual from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. At 7:30, all will move to the Community Room for the 67 minute film.
