Join other LGBTQ identified parents in this group for 2 hours weekly on Sunday mornings from 10:00am-12:00pm(PST) to connect virtually and in-person. Be in community with other LGBTQ caregivers and families, share resources, and interact with their children to support their psycho-social developments, parent-child bonds, and protective factors that help strengthen our families.

FACILITATOR:

This playdate will be facilitated by OFC intern, Aidan Parisi. Aidan (they/them) is finishing their last semester at San José State University studying Sociology and Spanish, with a concentration in Race and Ethnic Studies. Growing up in Washington DC, Aidan found their passion for social welfare and justice through youth activism supporting undocumented and queer communities of color. Before returning to school, Aidan worked with City Year San José working to improve the literacy and socioeconomic growth of underserved 3rd-grade students on the Eastside of San José. They hope to expand their passions for redistributing power to underserved and exploited communities through a Masters of Social Welfare following their graduation in the fall.
