Proclamation - Pride Month, June 2024

Event: Pride Month 

Date: June 2024 

Whereas June is celebrated as Pride Month in Canada and globally, highlighting the importance of embracing diversity, fostering inclusion, and acknowledging the significant social, economic, and cultural contributions of 2SLGBTQI+ individuals in our communities; and

Whereas during Pride Month, we honour the remarkable courage and resilience demonstrated by 2SLGBTQI+ people across Canada and recommit our efforts to preventing discrimination and advancing inclusion and acceptance for all members of our communities; and

Whereas Pride Month is an opportunity to celebrate progress while also acknowledging the ongoing challenges in the fight against discrimination and violence based on sexual and gender identity, and reminds us of the importance of advocating for change and continued education and awareness in the fight for equality;

Now Therefore Be It Resolved That I, Warden Brian Ostrander, on behalf of Northumberland County Council, do hereby proclaim June to be ‘Pride Month’ in Northumberland County.”
