Our arrangement, "Marsha", was created to honor Transgender activist and icon, Marsha P. Johnson and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. For June's celebration of PRIDE month we've created an arrangement to celebrate the members of the community who have, and continue to fight for the rights of our LGBTQ friends around the world.
A portion of proceeds from all Floom orders of the "Marsha" arrangement will be donated to a Pride partner charity, Diversity Role Models.
Diversity Role Models actively seeks to embed inclusion and empathy in the next generation. Our vision is a world where everyone embraces diversity and can thrive. This will help create a world where future generations embrace, accept and support difference. Our mission is to create an education system in which every young person will know that they are valued and supported, whoever they are.
We do this by creating safe spaces where young people can explore difference and consider their role in creating a world where we all feel accepted. Our student workshops feature positive LGBT+ or ally role models who speak openly about their lived experiences, building young people's empathy so they can understand the (often unintended) impact of their language and actions.
