The YMCA of Montclair is hosting a Pride Brave Space Community Dialogue on Tuesday, June 22, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The event is part of the YMCA’s our ongoing Brave Space Community Dialogue series.

This event will focus on the unique experiences and challenges facing the LGBTQ+ community. The event is designed to create dialogue through lecture, conversation, and a question and answer period. Participants are encouraged to explore their own biases, build their knowledge and understanding, and approach this topic with empathy.

The lecture will:

  • Review terminology related to LGBTQ+ communities
  • Explain the unique challenges and health disparities facing LGBTQ+ communities
  • Identify ways to create safer and more supportive environments for LGBTQ+ communities
  • Discuss the resources available to develop a deeper understanding

The discussion will be led by Emma Vibber. A resident of Chicago, Vibber is the quality and professional development manager for a statewide coalition that seeks to provide Illinois youth with quality and affordable after-school programming. Vibber is originally from the Philadelphia area where she attended West Chester University for both her undergraduate and graduate degrees. She has earned a master of arts degree in communication studies and rooted her collegiate career in gender studies, social equity, and feminism. She has been a longtime advocate and member of the Central Bucks YMCA in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.

The event is free, and all are welcome—register on Zoom.
