Pride Town Hall to Be Held May 27

May 22, 2020

Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) will hold its first-ever virtual Pride Town Hall from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 27. The forum will be broadcast live on the MCPS website and on the MCPSTV YouTube channel. The event is open to all MCPS students, families, staff and community members. 

The purpose of this town hall is to reconnect with MCPS LGBTQ+ youth, families and community during the COVID-19 crisis. During the event, community partners and organizations will share resources available to students and families, and also discuss the challenges LGBTQ+ youth may be facing during the extended school closure. MCPS staff and representatives from Casa Ruby, the Family Justice Center, GLSEN, the Montgomery County Council of Parent Teacher Associations (MCCPTA), MoCo Pride Center, MoCo Pride Student Organization, PFLAG and SMYAL will be available to answer questions from participants in this webinar. 

Participants can join anonymously by using an incognito window in Google Chrome or an InPrivate window in Internet Explorer, clicking the meeting link, joining from their browser, and specifying the name and pronouns they’d like to use at the “Join a Meeting” prompt.

The town hall will include remarks from Gender and Sexuality Alliance sponsors, MCPS Chief Academic Officer María Navarro and representatives from MCCPTA.
