Dear Families With Dignity Friends and Supporters
Summertime is upon us in full bloom, but Families With Dignity has not taken a summer break from our regular general meeting which will take place on Zoom at 1 PM on Sunday, July 25th.
We are excited to introduce our speaker, Nathan Nguyen, the current Director of LBGT Student Services at Western Michigan University who will share with us his experiences supporting and counseling LGBTQ+ students at a number colleges and universities. Nathan is Vietnamese and shares his background growing up in a Buddhist family in Kansas City.
Back in April Nathan was a member of a panel in which three of our FWD members also participated. We heard about his work with LGBTQ+ high school students helping them to prepare for a less stressful entrance to college life. We were impressed with his experience and his advice about supporting LGBTQ+ kids.
