June Newsletter: Everyone is Welcome at McClendon Center

We Stand with Pride 🏳️‍🌈

It’s PRIDE month, and here at McClendon, we’re celebrating the same way we do every day–by embracing all people and ensuring that they have a safe place to celebrate being themselves.

Often, LGBTQIA+ folks from communities of color are reluctant to come out, which is why as a predominantly Black-serving organization, we make it abundantly clear that no matter who you are, you are accepted here.

Celebrating Juneteenth 🖤❤️💚💛

Honoring Juneteenth means learning and growing. Earlier this week, we brought our Day Program participants together in recognition of Juneteenth. It was a wonderful opportunity for our clients to connect, learn, and reflect on the significance of this important part of our nation’s history.

McClendon Center has curated 5 essential reads to gain a richer perspective on this day of freedom and resilience.

Knowledge fuels empowerment—let’s harness it together.
