Joe Richards is many things — but first, he was a kindergartener.

“I think most people know the kind of field trip — all the little kindergartners take their lunches and coats and pile into a bus together and head to a museum,” he remembers.

“At the end of ours, they asked all the kids to present what they wanted to be when they grew up. I knew I wanted to be an artist, but my strongest memory from that moment is listening to everyone else’s answers and wanting to understand the ‘why’ behind them.”

Powering the Future of Pride: T-Mobile Invests in Educational Equity for LGBTQ+ Youth

The Un‑carrier announced it will give a combined $1.25 million to Human Rights Campaign Foundation and GLSEN initiatives
Summary: 

What’s the news: To celebrate Pride this year, T-Mobile is furthering its longstanding support of organizations that serve LGBTQ+ youth with a $1 million donation to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s new financial and digital literacy initiatives and a $250,000 donation to GLSEN’s efforts to make schools safer and more inclusive.

Why it matters: These initiatives will have critical — and potentially lifechanging — impacts. They provide educational resources to help LGBTQ+ youth who are 120% more likely than cisgender or heterosexual youth to experience homelessness, unstable housing or live in foster care and, as a result, are at higher risk of dropping out of school, facing unemployment and suffering from poverty later in life. They will also support inclusive school programming that connects with the over half of LGBTQ+ students who feel unsafe in school because of their sexual orientation or gender expression.

Who it’s for: LGBTQ+ youth who are shaping the future of their — and all of our — communities.
