As advocates for all, SJCS recently highlighted our dedication to the #BlackLivesMatter movement as well as celebrating SJCS PRIDE month in June. Alex explains as a Trans person how choosing a place to work was based on more than just the position he was looking for, it was about finding an organization that was committed to supporting everyone. Having and affirming individuals like Alex on our team here at SJCS is what makes our organization great, helping us all to better understand how we can grow. Educating ourselves, being advocates, and giving every person space to be their best self, is how we can be allies as individuals and as an organization.
If you missed the inspiring Facebook Live interview with Alan Thornton SJCS President & CEO and Alex Roberts, SJCS Human Resources Associate, here is your chance to watch this candid discussion based on inclusion and advocacy and what we all can do to improve ourselves, our society and workplaces to become true allies.
SJCS strongly believes that regardless of an individual’s circumstance, whether that be economic status, race, religion, age, mental or physical disability, sex, sexual orientation or identity—the people we serve, our employees and those we encounter in the communities we serve, deserve the right and opportunity to live their best lives. Our video series Advocates for All, are compilations of candid, personal and in-depth interviews with individuals sharing their experiences, ideas, and thoughts on what it means to be an advocate, an ally, and a member of our incredibly diverse community.
We are St. John’s Community Services and we are Advocates for All!
