For this year’s International Pronouns Day, Gender-SMART endorses and supports the campaign by sharing relevant resources.
The official endorsement:
“We endorse International Pronouns Day, which seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people’s multiple, intersecting identities. We encourage colleges, schools, workplaces, and local organizations to hold educational and empowering events on International Pronouns Day.”
You can also make a splash in the media and in the community by joining, using the hashtag #PronounsDay.
Here are some ideas:
- Post your own pronouns on social media.
- Invite other members of the community to individually share resources and thoughts on social media about the importance of using the correct pronouns for people.
