2020 marked a year in which Americans were forced to confront racism in the country. This month, we embrace the complexities of stories about race in America.
June is PRIDE Month, and WORLD is ready to celebrate the freedom of living authentically. Watch films supporting the LGBTQIA+ community in stories about relationships that reflect what it means to have PRIDE.
FEATURES & HIGHLIGHTS
As the country moves forward with its efforts to achieve racial justice and address systemic inequalities, we continue to reflect on how we talk about #RaceinAmerica with DECOLONIZING MENTAL HEALTH, a new series dismantling the racism that underscores the mental healthcare industry. Every week, therapists and patients of color share their stories and call for change in the way mental health is defined and treated within BIPOC communities.
