GLIDE Emerging Leader: Coty Lovelady

Get to know Coty Lovelady in this installment of GLIDE’s Emerging Leaders Internship profiles!

School & Major: Birmingham-Southern College, Religion (Major), Art (Minor)

What brought you to GLIDE? My college’s Hess Fellow program. I was interested in a faith-based, diverse, and inclusive organization.

What do you hope to contribute/learn during your time at GLIDE? I hope to bring with me a love for stories. I hope to gain an understanding of how GLIDE’s clients tell their stories through a visual exploration of the self and environment.

Which of GLIDE’s Core Values resonates with you most and why? Truth Telling. It is our collective narrative that reminds us of our humanity and allows us to love. Without stories we have no history, no spirituality, no humanity.

I wish …poverty was understood as a national issue, dealt with the entire society.

I hope …I make a difference in someone’s life this summer.

I am grateful… for GLIDE, the Tenderloin, and the storytellers in this community.

Joyce Hayes, celebrating life, love and GLIDE with @doricamino and @edenchanstreetscooper at the 2014 Holiday Jam. A retro photo of Joyce Hayes, a true GLIDE hero, who so strongly believed in supporting children and providing them with stability, education and #unconditionallove. GLIDE regrets to tell our community that Joyce Hayes, an icon in our history and childcare program, passed away on Tuesday, 5/23/2017. Her life, love and legacy will not be forgotten. 
Please take a moment to read this tribute to our beloved "Joy": glidesf.wordpress.com/2017/05/26/in-memory-of-joyce-hayes-the-heartbeat-of-glides-fycc/ Shout-out @blueshieldofca volunteers! Our Harm Reduction Team always needs people to help assemble safer injection kits. Distributing these kits to our community members who inject drugs greatly reduces the spread of Hep C and HIV. It's about #publichealth and recognizing the dignity and human rights of ALL people living in our city! #harmreduction #cleansharps
