 Chadwick Kicks Off Pride Month!

Today, Chadwick kicked off Pride Month with an array of events, guest speakers, booths and activities, organized by the Safe Space and Pride Alliance student and parent affinity groups, school administration and faculty members.

Pride is celebrated during the month of June as a commemoration of the Stonewall Uprising, a crucial moment in LGBTQ+ history, and celebrates the entire LGBTQ+ community. We began with a Pride flag-raising ceremony with Middle and Upper School students on Vanderlip Lawn, where faculty and students heard remarks from Assistant Head of School Elizabeth Imende-Cooney, teacher Sra. Angie Nevarez, and parent and Pride Alliance leader Sarah Ramsey-Duke. Later, during the Pride Assembly, student speakers Trix ’27 and Gael ’23 shared what Pride Month means to them and teacher An Nguyen spoke about how she's embraced her queer identity. PFLAG and APLA Health also shared about their services and answered questions from the audience. The Pride Resource Fair followed, in which students visited various booths, and learned more about the resources available to support them. Chadwick School affirms our LGBTQ+ students, faculty, staff and parents. A diverse and supportive community is a strong one.
