Early in the pandemic several individuals that CFS supports joined up to form the CFS Poetry Club. Every other week for two years, the Club has met on Zoom with CFS staff from the Innovative Planning Department to share their creative work, collaborate with one another, and connect with participants from a variety of programs and residences. Over the last four months, with COVID restrictions being relaxed, the club has expanded to include photography.

The CFS Poetry & Photography Club celebrated pride month by creating a sentence of strength for the community. Conversations between the group of parallels and acceptance were discussed. Each member described their meaning of pride and hopes for a peaceful & equal future for all.

Using descriptive words, they wrote a powerful sentence using the letters from the word P.R.I.D.E.
