Societal concepts, simplified

L is for LGBTQIA. Find the words that make you, you.

N is for No. No means no.

P is for Privilege. Be aware of your advantages.

X is for Xenophobia. Ask questions and you’ll see there’s nothing to be afraid of.

Celebrate your Differences, ask more Questions, share your Kindness and learn to Understand the world.


Each concept is meant to spark a conversation between parents and their young children, but with simple terminology and even easier definitions.
