Speaking of awesome community members, Board Chair, Paige Koudjis, Jen Hatch and I did some brainstorming with Founding Major Donor, Joseph Rand ofBetter Homes and Gardens Rand Realty & Rand Commercial. Rand Commercial was instrumental in the purchase of our building at 28 S. Franklin in Nyack. Rand also gave us temporary office space at their Nyack offices — our first official home for Pride Center business! (p.s. This listing.)
Last month, the Rockland County Legislature unanimously voted to call on the New York State Senate to finally pass GENDA. GENDA, as you may know, is a piece of NY State legislation that would protect Transgender New Yorkers from discrimination.
Summertime! School is out, kids are at camp, vaca/staycations are in full effect, AC’s are blasting and Pride Month 2017 is in the books! It was so busy, in fact, it spilled into July and the month escaped us.
Please welcome Loren Klein to the Pride Center team! Loren is the Coordinator of Transgender and Non-Binary Programs & Services. He will be working with us to meet the needs of our growing communities.
