Why do we celebrate Pride Month? The truth is that the fight continues for equal protection under the law in cases of employment, housing, adoption, and medical care. So while Pride serves as a wonderful opportunity to celebrate equality and visibility in the LGBTQ community, we must acknowledge that we still have a long way to go. I wish everyone a safe and happy Pride Month celebrating who you are.
At the Eagle Courts of Honor today for Troops 30 and 99, I presented Senate Citations to Matthew Humbert, Evan Wadley, Gray Gibson, John Yates, Tucker Smith, and John Roache. The projects these young men created reflect their commitment to serving our community.
We had beautiful weather and a great turnout for today’s Shredding Event & Community Drive. Special thanks to my co-host, Rep. Wendy Ullman, and to Plumstead Township Police Department, Plumsteadville Volunteer Fire Company, Doylestown Lions Club, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County, and Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County for spending the day with us!
