Umbrella Center Strength-4-Survivors - Choose Love Awareness Month - Human Rights Campaign

Jan 31, 2021, 01:15 PM

We're circling back to the Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services, which is serving thousands of families in greater New Haven and the Naugatuck Valley. We'll discuss their all important preventative tool -  community outreach and education, its Hope Family Justice Center, and how to help by participating in the 2021 Strength-4-Survivors challenge.

Then we'll visit with Scarlett Lewis, founder of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement - to get the latest news on this global social emotional learning initiative, and how you can participate all through February - Choose Love Awareness Month.

And we'll hear about how well our state is doing protecting members of our LGBTQ communities from discrimination - especially comparedd to other states. We're bringing in the legal director for the Human Rights Campaign to talk about why we're doing so well and what we could do better as we unpack the organization's 7th national State Equality Index.
