COR hosted a booth at NKY PrideFest in Covington on June 6th. The mood that day was upbeat and festive with beautiful weather, music, drag shows, and more. During NKY PrideFest, COR had about 100 people sign up to receive our monthly newsletter. The event was our first time using the purple canopy that we purchased over a year ago and also the first time COR hosted a table at an event since 2019. We hope you enjoy this newsletter and hope to see everyone, both new and returning, at our upcoming events.

We need your help! Your input, suggestions and feedback were critical to us when we launched the Community of Reason. Your insights and perspectives continue to be important to us as we plan the remaining events for 2021 and begin to plan for 2022. Please complete this survey by June 10. This important online COR survey will help guide the planning of our events and activities as we begin to transition from a primarily virtual presence. The initial questions are COVID related, but the remainder of the survey is about our events and activism. If you've attended or have thought about attending some of these events, we want your feedback! We want to hear the good things that we are doing (so we can keep doing them) and we also want to hear about the not-so-good things (so we can improve). The survey should only take 5-10 minutes to complete.
