Pride events provide a perfect opportunity for us to connect with and engage many members of our community as well as allies. By setting up informational booths at Pride festivals and other events, we are able to talk to people about the work Lambda Legal is doing, share with them ways they can get involved. For some, they may be finding out about our programs and resources for the first time. Every Pride season, we develop an educational or advocacy campaign highlighting an issue we work on and each year, thousands of people take a small action such as signing a petition to help achieve equality. We also march in some Pride parades each year and at times we lead know-your-rights workshops and other programs for Prides.
Pride season is March through November, and while we can’t cover every Pride, thanks to volunteers from all over the country, we are able to attend many Pride events. No matter the city or the activity, joining a Pride team is one of the most fun ways to volunteer. Come get a free Lambda Legal T-shirt, pass out some information and fun giveaways and soak up the energy and spirit that is uniquely Pride. Check our events listing below to see if Lambda Legal will be at a Pride celebration near you.
