We can't say enough good things about the staff of the Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity. They helped us so much recently when we experienced an act of hate and ignorance that targeted our beautiful community, and especially our Spanish-speaking families. We are especially grateful that the CSGD is continuing to support us as we implement awareness trainings in English and Spanish that will help us create a truly inclusive school community. We want every kid, parent, teacher, and staff member to feel at Voorhies and BCSD the true belonging and LOVE that the CSGD showed us when we first walked through their doors hurting and lost. Thank You, Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity of Bakersfield!
