Tomorrow, July 19, Bremerton Police Department is launching the BPD Safe Place program. BPD Safe Place aims to create safe locations for individuals to visit if they feel they have been the victim of hate (or bias) crimes. Participants place an easily recognizable decal in their entrances. This symbol is a signal for victims of hate crimes that this location has partnered with the police, will call 911 on their behalf and allow them a safe place to stay on the premises until the police arrive. Visit www.BremertonwA.gov/1118/BPD-Safe-Place to: • Understand hate crimes • Learn how to report hate crimes • Get involved and participate in the program • Order a BPD Safe Place decal • Contact the BPD Safe Place Coordinator ...

Q Youth Resources is thrilled to share some exciting news with our community! We have been proudly serving LGBTQ+ youth and families in Kitsap County for over a decade. Our programs--from Friday night drop-in to our annual Pink Prom--have created safe and affirming spaces for our community's LGBTQ+ youth and their families. We have created incredible memories and counted ourselves lucky to walk beside the youth and families who have been a part of our programs. As we look towards the future of Q Youth Resources we believe that in order to do best by our community we have to be bold and adaptable. While our Friday night Drop In program has been the cornerstone of our organization, we have heard from our community that our impact must grow beyond Drop In in order to best meet the changing needs of our community. Because of this Q Youth Resources has decided to end our weekly drop-in program-- our last Drop In will be July 26th. While this news may feel bittersweet, we cannot wait to see how our organization grows as we begin this new journey! Q Youth Resources will continue to host community events and gatherings for LGBTQ+ youth and families. We will also begin providing scholarship and grant assistance to local LGBTQ+ students, adults and families seeking gender-related care, and to service professionals seeking training to better serve our LGBTQ+ community. We believe by addressing these specific barriers and lifting our local community up we will help make our LGBTQ+ and allied community even stronger. Here's to our future, together! Attached is our FAQ about this transition---please read to get your questions answered. Still have questions for us? Get in touch over messenger or by email at email@example.com . You can also come see us at our Kitsap Pride booth and ask us questions in person. Thank you, QYR Board ... See more

The Pink Prom is “more of a party to just celebrate them, than necessarily like a milestone that every teen feels obligated to complete,” an organizer said.
