This year, I had the opportunity to volunteer at the 2011 Mid-South Pride Festival and Parade, an annual, multicultural and educational event in Memphis that highlights the continued need for better understanding, respect and fairness for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) people and their allies. FedEx was one of several organizations having a presence including many corporations, multi-faith places of worship, and non-profits. Supportive organizations of the event included the National Civil Rights Museum and Downtown Memphis Commission. We proudly promoted FedEx as an employer of choice and the Safe Kids Walk This Way program, which teaches safe behaviors to motorists and child pedestrians that help create safer communities.
