Proclamation - Pride Month, June 2023

Event: Pride Month 

Date: June, 2023 

“Whereas June is recognized as Pride Month in Canada and all around the world as an opportunity to celebrate diversity, inclusion and the social, economic and cultural contributions of 2SLGBTQI+ individuals in our communities; and

Whereas Pride Month is an opportunity to reflect on the challenges 2SLGBTQI+ individuals have faced, recommitting our efforts to prevent discrimination and promote inclusion and acceptance of all, and working towards a safer and more equitable Northumberland County; and  

Whereas during Pride Month we recognize the progress that has been made and the work still to be done, and acknowledge that continued education and awareness are essential in the fight to end discrimination and violence based on sexual identity and gender identity; 

Now Therefore Be It Resolved That I, Warden Mandy Martin, on behalf of Northumberland County Council, do hereby proclaim June as ‘Pride Month’ in Northumberland County.”
