We are thrilled to announce that Gap has launched a nationwide media campaign in partnership with Gender & Family Project Advisory Council member, Jodie Patterson. Jodie and her chosen family are featured alongside GFP Director, Jean Malpas in a creative campaign centered on gender diversity and family acceptance. The 2019 partnership comes ahead of the 50-year mark of the 1969 Stonewall riots, a pivotal moment in the movement for LGBTQIA+ equality.
Ackerman’s Center for Families and Health is featured in Prevention.com in the article, How to Talk to Your Kids About Your Cancer Diagnosis. Prevention spoke with Ackerman alum and Center for Families and Health Member, Nell Shanahan, LCSW for her suggestions for ways parents can support their children while dealing with serious illness.
The Ackerman Institute for the Family stands with people around the world in celebrating Pride Month. With the rest of the world, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising that sparked a nationwide movement uniting for the rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Non-Binary, Intersex, Queer, and Asexual people. Join us as we honor the trailblazers from the past who stood up for their rights and for the rights of generations of people to follow.
Ackerman’s Gender & Family Project will have a float in the 2019 WorldPride March on June 30th honoring the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall. Keep an eye out for our GFP team, families, and supporters marching along the route.
Congratulations to Ackerman’s 2019 Social Work & Diversity Program graduates!
