Pride in Chestermere
June was Pride Month & and June 24-30 was Pride Week in Chestermere!
Our Pride Committee worked hard on some really cool community events including a film screening, discussion group and the Pride in the Park event! They also recruited a bunch of volunteers to paint the crosswalks at City Hall with a couple'a rainbows!
Faces of Chestermere
Most often we do not understand what diversity means, or the discriminations that people in our community might be experiencing. Faces of Chestermere aims to bring awareness to Chestermere’s diversity by photographing residents faces, and displaying those photographs with statistics throughout the City.
Photo booths will displayed at special events like Canada Day and Water Festival. We invite residents to join together in publicly proclaiming their personal choices, characteristics, or beliefs and showcase that differences are not to be feared.
