"In Our Family" is particularly relevant given the modern proliferation of nontraditional families, including multiracial families, extended families, single-parent households, and LGBTQ families, which continues to diversify our environment as people are increasingly required to interact daily with others of divergent social identities.

"In Our Family" is a museum-quality traveling photo-text exhibit about 20 families representing a breadth of diversity and family configurations including: adoptive and foster families; divorced and stepfamilies, single parent households, multiracial families, families facing chronic illness and death; families living with mental and physical disabilities; lesbian and gay-parented families; interfaith families, multigenerational households, and immigrant families.

Designed for audiences of all ages -- from early childhood to adults -- "In Our Family" challenges stereotypes and helps dismantle prejudice by celebrating and affirming differences of all kinds.

This exhibit was designed to help prevent bullying and promote acceptance of the multitude of diversity within our culture.

The community is invited to stop by the exhibit. For details, call (630) 232-7143 or visit www.genevaucc.org.
