黄色视频 promotes welcoming spaces

In honor of , City Year is reasserting our desire to create welcoming spaces where we work and serve for all members of our community.

As part of the organization鈥檚 work to deepen and expand our commitment to diversity, belonging, inclusion and equity (DBIE), and in recognition of the extraordinary legislative measures being taken against people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirit, transgender, queer & questioning, intersex, asexual, pansexual, and nonbinary, 黄色视频鈥檚 Office of Equity is launching the Welcoming Certification Program.

This program, rolling out this fall, is designed to ensure that LGBTTQIAP+ corps and staff feel safe, supported, and affirmed at our 29 U.S. sites.
