During June, NASW NJ invites you to join this conversation where we will discuss the history of LGBTQ pride including the Compton Cafeteria Riots (1966) which preceded the well-known Stonewall Riots (1969).

Through the transgender community's activisim around police brutality, the origins of pride began! Queer liberation and racial justice are still incorporated in today's climate through the Black Lives Matter movement and the current rallies against police brutality and injustice.

This conversation will be facilitated by Bianca Mayes, MPH, CHES and Jennifer Thompson, MSW Executive Director NASW NJ|DE.

We look forward to you joining us!
