This year, as we reflect on Pride Month, we’re reminded of the words of American activist Barbara Gittings, who once said, “Equality means more than passing laws. The struggle is really won in the hearts and minds of the community, where it really counts.” While we continue to see change that positively affects the LGBTQIA+ community, such as last week’s Supreme Court ruling, there is still work to be done for true equality.
W2 Communications is committed to the words of Barbara Gittings and we advocate for full acceptance and equality for the LGBTQIA+ community.
To support this and other important social causes that are pressing for needed changes to make our world a better place, we recently formed a social action committee. As a member of this committee and a W2 Communications employee, I want to affirm that we stand together with the LGBTQIA+ community to continue to affect positive change.
We are devoted to taking action supporting the rights of every LGBTQIA+ individual by:
- Using our platforms, including CYBERTACOS and Inside the Media Minds Podcast, to foster discussions that will help push forward acceptance and equality
- In the coming months, identifying opportunities to provide pro-bono strategic communications and digital marketing services to LGBTQIA+ charitable organizations
- Listening to the LGBTQIA+ community regarding other ways we can help
Our team will be releasing more specific details and implementing the programs outlined above in the coming weeks. If you would like to suggest an organization we could support, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We passionately condemn all acts of hatred and oppression and support a vision of society built on embracing differences and giving a platform to everyone. We value the intrinsic worth of every individual and firmly believe each person must be peaceably afforded the opportunity to pursue happiness and live their life free of oppression and bigotry.
