Updates!

Our board meeting went very well last week. It was nice to see familiar faces, and to start putting in the groundwork for what should be an exciting year.

Some things to look out for this year, is ongoing series on transgender issues. Please look out for these topics, the last Tuesday of each month. Many people may have questions about what is transgender? Or may just be looking for a safe place to talk, this is the perfect place. We hope to see many faces come out and join us.

We will also be doing Red Flag month again, so please stay tuned for some exciting events associated with that.

Black Lives Matter at NOVA

black lives matter

This phrase has been appearing across social media as of late, in the wake of both Ferguson and New York. There are heated debates all over discussing police brutality, but on a larger scale, systems that exist that do not protect people of color, and perpetuate long held sentiments of institutionalized racism.

We have never really had an honest discussion about racism in this country, and how it is so entrenched in the foundations, and how it has shaped the way we function as a nation today. Ferguson and New York are just two more tragic examples of this, and how there needs to be a change, and how we need to have an honest discussion.

Today NOVA stands together.
