Each year during Pride Month, a coalition of Greenpoint businesses come together to raise awareness and money for LGBTQ+ charities. This year Parachute Brooklyn will donate 20% of sales during Pride weekend to Equality FL.
"The Don’t Say LGBTQ law, first adopted last year, has already led to a widespread anti-LGBTQ chilling effect in Florida’s schools. Books with LGBTQ characters and authors, along with characters and authors of color, have been banned in numerous districts. Rainbow “Safe Space” stickers and Pride flags have been torn from classroom walls. Districts have rejected LGBTQ History Month. And school boards across the state have descended into chaos as their new right-wing majorities turn classrooms into political battlefields." -Equality Florida
Equality Florida is the largest civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. Through education, grassroots organizing, coalition building, and lobbying, we are changing Florida so that no one suffers harassment or discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
