Linda Ridenour: Platas inspire satellite Places

Re “LGBT youths find support in safe Place” (Page A1, Sept. 22): I’d like to add that Ed and Elizabeth Plata have worked tirelessly and compassionately to provide a welcoming and safe space for all youths (not just LGBQT) and their parents. The Place is a model support group thanks to the Platas’ commitment. The Platas have also inspired a “satellite” Place in the Oakdale area. For more information, call (209) 765-8071 or (209) 484-7543.
