For our final #PRIDE feature, we talked to Jermaine Moore from our Detroit office about how he's getting involved throughout the month. "The Pride BRG is going to be collecting clothes and toiletries for a local non-profit named The Ruth Ellis Center throughout June and July. This organization focuses on youth in the LGBTQ community. This collection for Ruth Ellis is what I am looking forward to heading with our BRG. There are so many young people that need support from non-profits and other programs when they may not have that support at home or if they are homeless.” We love this! Thank you for your work, Jermaine! #myCDKPrideStory
