"Hope will never be silent" -Harvey Milk

Pride began here at the Stonewall Inn, 51 years ago today. Absent a large festival and parade, Pride has in many ways returned to its roots in Civil Rights activism. Pride Month is a celebration of their courage and a reminder that everyone should be able to live their truth with dignity.

At Volunteers of America Minnesota and Wisconsin, we know that to be able to uplift all lives, we need to celebrate each life, especially those who are not receiving equal treatment under the law or under community practices. We see beyond the labels to see the whole unique individuals each of us are. And we welcome our employees to bring their whole selves to work.

From all of us at VOA MN/WI, Happy Pride!

All of us at Volunteers of America Minnesota and Wisconsin wishes a Happy Father’s Day to you, our front line fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers, great-grandfathers, great-great-grandfathers, foster fathers, and ‘like-a-dad-to me’ fathers everywhere!
