Now Recruiting Pride Captains for YDWA’s Pride campaign!
Last year’s Pride campaign was a tremendous success – with Young Democrats participating in six Pride events across the state: Bellingham, Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, Pullman and Spokane! This year we are at it again, looking to walk in parades and frolic in festivals and advocate for the Queer caucus’s priorities: stopping discrimination in the workplace, outlawing “conversion therapy”, supporting homeless queer youth, and increasing access to transgender health care.
Be a part of the Pride campaign by volunteering to be a Pride captain! Pride captains help lead their local event, work with the Queer caucus chair to gather materials for booths and parades, and educate their fellow volunteers on queer caucus priorities. We will only attend Pride events that have a captain, right now our goal is to be at:
OutSpokane – 6/14
Capital City Pride (Olympia) – 6/21-6/22
Seattle Pridefest Parade – 6/29
Out in the Park (Tacoma) – 7/12
Saturday in the Park Pride (Vancouver) – 7/12
Bellingham Pride – 7/12 -7/13
Kitsap Pride – 7/20
Mid Columbia Pride – 7/20
Moscow Pullman Pride (Palouse Pride) – 8/8-8/10
You can e-mail Queer@YDWA.org to volunteer.
