Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Date(s) - Wednesday, December 6, 2023
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


As part of our mission in social justice (and feedback from our recent survey), we are excited to announce a new group at Cedars designed to serve our local queer community (including allies).

Somewhere Over the Rainbow is to be an LGBTQ+ support group providing education on important matters affecting queer individuals as well as a safe space for connection.

The group will discuss a wide range of topics related to the LGBTQ+ community, particularly concerns and challenges affecting the mental health of queer people, and will be facilitated by Kenny Davis, a local Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate with Caretta Counseling Alliance, who has volunteered to offer this program for Cedars and the wider community.

The group will meet in the Cedars Center at 6 p.m. on the first Wednesday of every month, with the first meeting scheduled for Wednesday, December 6th. This first meeting will give members a chance to learn more about the group leader and provide input for topics they would like to see in future meetings. Allyship, including addressing how to be a better ally and answering questions will be the first topic.

Some meetings may be closed to allies of the LGBTQ+ community depending on topics, but allies are warmly welcomed and encouraged to attend this first meeting. We look forward to seeing all colors of the rainbow in attendance and hope to see you there.
