Nonstop social media. Quarantine. Political unrest. Baggage. And so many deadlines. Nearly everyone strives to be a more inclusive, kind leader, but getting it right is rarely easy. We are all products of our upbringing, environments, biases (known and unknown), and daily stressors. And while we may intend on being welcoming, the impact of our actions often is not.

Thanks for participating in PFLAG Academy Online! One of our key goals is to help you take the information that you learned in this session and use it to make your chapter stronger and more effective. To do that, we’ve created this page to provide you with tools, resources, and references to materials mentioned in the workshop. As always, the PFLAG National staff is here to help. If you have any questions, comments, or just need some good advice, please don’t hesitate to contact us
