1st grade parents at Blackstone Valley Prep are asked to avoid bringing in valentines that “portray only White characters”


Blackstone Valley Prep’s “1st grade team” sent a note home to the parents/guardians of 1st grade students about Valentine’s Day. They tell parents to remember that Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love that needs to be inclusive of LGBTAQ families and ask them to “consider talking to their child about avoiding cards that portray only White human characters” because “representation matters.”

First graders are usually six and seven years old.
