Everyone Welcome

Everyone Welcome! You may have noticed our new flag displayed at our South entrance. As we move through June, it serves as a poignant reminder to reflect upon our mission and join hands with diverse communities in joyously celebrating Pride Month.

We join in the celebration of Pride and the profound messages and themes it embodies. We take great joy in honoring the acceptance, equality, and visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals within our Co-op and across all communities. This celebration upholds the fundamental principle that every person, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, deserves equal treatment and support in an environment that fosters self-acceptance and promotes visibility. We wholeheartedly affirm that everyone should have the freedom to live openly and proudly, embracing their authentic selves.

Our commitment to Everyone is Welcome demonstrates our steadfast devotion to ensuring accessibility and inclusivity for every member of our community. Regardless of ownership status, sexual orientation, background, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, disability, or any other distinguishing factor, we wholeheartedly embrace and serve individuals without any form of discrimination. Our goal is to foster an equitable and accommodating environment where everyone feels appreciated, respected, and afforded equal opportunities. This pledge extends to the following areas:
