This past year has undoubtedly been one of unprecedented times with many challenges met along the way including fires, floods and a global pandemic.
In 2021, WE RISE.
The last 12 months has equally seen separation and togetherness. We have found new ways to connect and the human spirit has played a pivotal role in allowing us all rise again when feeling isolated, lost and unsure.
The power of people and communities to rise together and support others to overcome adversity and inequality is important to celebrate on the annual Mardi Gras event. This year, we're celebrating rising again and rising to the the challenge of being our true selves, of loving who we love and of discovering our own identities.
There is great power to be found when people come together.
"In tough times and in good, discrimination will only divide and take us backwards. When we rise together through love, compassion, respect and understanding, we will all arrive to a better place.
When we rise to the occasion, amazing things happen. We are agents of change. We rise to the challenge of being our true selves, of loving who we love, of discovering our own identities, culture and creativity."
We connect. We overcome fear. We emerge from hard times stronger together.

Together, let's create a platform for #EveryBoody to rise.
