We've all heard it said:

It takes a village to raise a child, but do we ever wonder why?


Of course we don't; we don't need to because it's easy to understand.

Children are vulnerable and families can only reach so far, so the care of children depends on something that extends out towards a sense of collective responsibility.


But do we ever wonder why we stop with children? 

Why don't we find ourselves just as committed to caring for our neighbor, the stranger down the street, or the coworker who we serve alongside? Why don't we keep creating villages that can for all of us instead?


Join Sarah Stevens, Community Impact Officer at The Project of the Quad Cities as she talks about what it takes to build a better village that centers the experience of LGBTQ+ in the workplace.
