However, I cannot stop there with a simple acknowledgement and words of sympathy. The world cannot simply sit back and expect a miraculous and necessary cultural change without [...]

By: Supreme Master-Elect Scott Knapp (Florida State, 2002) (Editor’s Note: AEPi wraps up pride month with this amazing article written by AEPi’s Supreme Master-Elect, Scott Knapp. Pride is an AEPi value.
