Volunteer to help at Pride Fest

Rhode Island Pride (https://www.prideri.org/) is a nonprofit advocacy group that supports equality and visibility for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Rhode Island Pride sponsors Pride Fest, an annual celebration in downtown Providence that attracts thousands of visitors from throughout the U.S. and Canada.

This year’s Pride Fest is on Saturday, June 15 from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. First Unitarian Church of Providence will have a vendor table staffed by volunteers, and has invited UUs from throughout Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts to help collect signatures in favor of a single-payer health care system (“Medicare-for-all”) and paint faces to raise money for the Alliance to Mobilize Our Resistance (AMOR RI).

If you’re interested in volunteering to staff the First Unitarian table at Pride Fest, please contact Jean Bowen at jeannbowen@gmail.com.
