June 2020

The Multicultural Center at WIU is highlighting two June national celebrations with virtual commemorations. The African-American community focused Juneteenth and LGBT*QA community focused Pride Month. Although the celebrations tend to give focus to a particular community, these are American celebrations by the diverse communities that comprise our nation.

With the LGBT*QA Resource Center at the forefront, Pride Month events are celebrated each April at WIU when the majority of students are on-campus.

We invite you to learn more about your fellow citizens and the struggles, obstacles and injustices that have been and continue to experience as well as join in the celebrations of the progress that has been made.

Together we move forward!
