BBYO to educate members on inclusivity

BBYO has received a £10,000 National Lottery award for its projects, which includes LGBT+ inclusion and celebration, leadership training, marketing and organisational development.

Professional training will be led by Keshet UK and Jonny Wineberg, director of Community Futures Trust and #WeStandTogether.

BBYO members will then conduct peer-led workshops and programmes for one another on the subject.

National president Matthew Buchalter, of BBYO South Manchester, said: “As a region in a global movement, partnerships between our members and LGBT+ organisations aid us to grow and build upon our core beliefs.”

Executive director Kira Blumer said: “From a professional standpoint, we understand that being Jewish and LGBT are not mutually exclusive and that we need to model this for our members who are community builders in their own right.”
