December Newsletter

There are 15 different holidays in December (that we know of, probably more). We’re going to be enjoying food, family, and really cheesy holiday movies. We’re especially excited by the new trend of LGBT+ inclusive movies for the season. Getting fully into the spirit, this year we’ve curated a few things for you, our UN|HUSHED friends and family.

First we made a fun little holiday playlist you can check out on Spotify here. We’d love to hear about your favorites from this list or ones you’d like to see added for next year, so share with us in a comment below.

Second, here at UN|HUSHED we love, LOVE, food. You may have been to an in person training—once upon a time—where we had fun snacks and tacos, always tacos. So in the spirit of being close even if we are far apart we’d like to share with you Dr. Rayne’s Holiday Hot Chocolate recipe.

Last but not least on the holiday agenda, don’t forget to Wrap it Up! (As in gifts, this time. Not condoms.) So many of the end of year holidays include gift giving, and this year Jessica Smarr assembled a great list of books for you to give to that someone special (and yep, we think you’re special enough to give yourself a gift, do it!)

We hope you have a super fun and safe holiday season. As we say auf wiedersehen to 2021 we’d like to leave you with a few thoughts about 2022.

Want to get yourself or someone in your organization trained to use the k-12 UNHUSHED curriculum? Fill out our 2022 Training Survey to help us get a sense of who, when, and how you want training to look in the new year.

Advisory Councils
Interviews for our councils have been underway, and we’re hoping to schedule more for the new year. We have spots open on our Curricula, Medical, and we’re especially excited about our new Legal Advisory Councils. If you’d like to volunteer to be part of the teams that review and update our curricula each year please apply here.

As always thanks for following along. We’d love to hear from you on our various social media accounts. Go like and share the things!
You can also set up a monthly donation to UN|HUSHED to help support our work here.
