Town and City of Groton to hold Pride Month celebrations

Groton — The Groton Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Collaboration will hold, for the second year in a row, a flag-raising event at Groton Town Hall for Pride Month to celebrate LGBTQ members of the community.

"In addition to raising the Pride Flag, a member of the Town Council will read a proclamation and a community member will speak about the importance of the display of support," according to a news release. "This year, the City of Groton will also be raising a Pride Flag at the City Municipal Building at the same time to amplify the message in the community."

"The Groton DEI Collaboration was formed several years ago to celebrate the town's diversity, to address inequities in everyday life for marginalized members of the community, and to fully include all members of the community," the release added. "The group is made up of town staff, elected officials, community members and other organizational partners. Coalition members serve on work groups for education and outreach; citizen response; workforce and leadership; and events."

The flag-raising events will be held at noon June 1 at Groton Town Hall, 45 Fort Hill Road, and the City Municipal Building, 295 Meridian St.
