Pride In Politics organizes activities to promote LGBT advocacy and activism within local, county, state and federal political levels. The program's goal is education on political issues which impact the lives of LGBT communities within a nonpartisan approach.
Events include activities to promote political engagement, voter registration, increasing awareness of how each level of government impacts LGBT lives and strategies to advocate for successful political outcomes.
The LOFT's Pride In Politics group is organizing a workshop at the Westchester Social Forum taking place on Saturday, May 20th at New Rochelle High School from 10am to 5pm. To register visit www.westchestersocialforum.org
About the event:
Building the Movement for Social & Ecological Justice
Join community organizations in Westchester for a social forum on May 20 to exchange ideas and information, foster solidarity, and celebrate our work to create a more just and equal society. We live in a time of struggle as we witness growing threats to the well-being of our planet and communities, as profit is placed over people and land, and corporations, not citizens, control our democracy.
Yet, we, the people, have the collective power to organize a movement for change. The Westchester Social Forum will provide the space to learn from one another, strengthen our organizing skills, and connect as a community.
The day will include a people’s march, workshops on organizing for social and ecological justice, and a culminating cultural celebration! We hope you can join us!
