June PRIDE Month is fast approaching and Serving With Pride (SWP) wants to get police services thinking about how they will celebrate. This year, in the absence of being able to plan or attend in-person events, SWP is issuing a challenge to all Canadian first responders and law enforcement (Police, Fire, CBSA, Corrections, Paramedics) – let’s light up social media with PRIDE and rainbows this June.
The challenge is this: Post photos or video greetings using the hashtag #servingwithpride during the month of June. Be sure to tag SWP accounts so that they can amplify your messages (Twitter: @LGBTQ911, Instagram: @servingwithpride, and Facebook: /servingwithpride).
The theme is open but some suggestions for messages include: “I serve with pride by.....” or “Pride month means...” or “I serve my LGBTQ2 community by...”.
Be creative, the sky is the limit!
