The month of June will be filled with events and engagement opportunities for the LGBTQ+ community and allies.

Here's all you need to know:

Business Activation - LETTERS OF LOVE

Returning for its second year in a row, Letters of Love. In honor of Pride Month, residents and visitors are invited to express love and support for our LGBTQ+ community by spreading kindness and positivity - and sharing stories of strength, love, and empowerment. During the month of June, pop-up stations will be setup at local businesses and organizations where visitors can create and leave a letter, and take a letter that speaks to them.
