Pride Month

June is Pride Month in the United States, a time to celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) community and to promote inclusivity. While this month-long celebration consists of parties and parades, it’s also a time for awareness and learning about a community that’s been historically mistreated and misunderstood. How does your town or school support the LGBTQ community?

The Kindness Challenge

Since the start of the pandemic, attacks on the Asian-American community have increased. Why? Some point to the fact that former President Trump called the novel coronavirus, the "China virus" and "kung flu," which incorrectly labeled and linked the spread of the virus to the Asian community. The result? A growing number of hate crimes aimed at Asian-Americans. What do you think we can do as a community to stop the spread of hate? At Xyza, we believe that human kindness is extremely powerful and that a kind world is a better world. So, we challenge you, our young readers, to spread kindness. We also challenge you to take the time to learn about people who are different from yourself. Information is key. Different is interesting. Kindness is powerful. Are you up for the kindness challenge? Share your thoughts on: 1) How we can spread more kindness and stop the spread of hate. 2) What people should know about you that makes you unique and different. We will compile your responses and share them with the Xyza community.
