CAMP Rehoboth’s Fay Jacobs Named Advocate Champion of Pride
Author and Letters editor Fay Jacobs has just been named one of the Advocate Magazine’s 2019 Champions of Pride.
The official announcement hit the newsstands on May 28. In addition, Jacobs was one of only a few of the champions profiled in an article to appear on Advocate.com during June Pride Month.
The magazine chose two people from each state as well as folks in Washington, DC and the eight US territories. To see the entire list of Champions, including Delaware Pride’s president Steve Newman, check out Advocate.com.
Editorial Director Diane Anderson-Minshall wrote to Jacobs last week, “On behalf of everyone at Pride Media and Retrograde Communications, I want to congratulate you for becoming a 2019 Champion of Pride. Moreover, I want to personally thank you for all the amazing work you do and for really making a difference in the world. You were nominated by our editors who are familiar with your work and we determined you were successfully making the world a better place for LGBTQ folks—and most likely a lot of others, too! So thank you and congrats again!” ▼
A New and Active Initiative- Advocates for Youth
CAMP Rehoboth Advocates is in search of a few good folks to work with, support, and advocate for LGBTQ youth and families in Sussex County.
This is just the kind of outreach CAMP Rehoboth has been doing throughout its 30-year history on an informal, when-the-need-arises basis. Now, it’s time to activate a group to fan out into the county and do the most good we can in a more organized way.
Do you have experience in education, law, policy-writing, social work, sports coaching, or youth activities?
Please come to an informal gathering to talk about your experience and interest, and how it can match up with our community’s needs, on Monday, June 24, at 4 p.m. at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center. RSVPs are required—call or email Sal Seeley at 302-227-5620 by June 17.
We know we can put together an awesome crew to help students and their families navigate some really important issues.
Please consider joining the team. ▼
