Pride Volunteers Needed

Please help us foster joy and pride! We are in need of help for Capital Pride.

The DC, Maryland & Virginia UU Community wants to show its support for the LGBTQA+ Community by hosting a free “Crafting Pride” booth at the Capital Pride festival this year, where the theme is “Elements of Us.” Every person’s life is composed of a kaleidoscope of extraordinary parts, and we want to celebrate that diversity with a rainbow of craft materials at the booth, along with information about the UU community, where volunteers will help festival-goers create personalized symbols of their pride: friendship bracelets, beaded pins for clothes, face painting, rainbow flowers, etc. We are looking for a handful of volunteers to help festival-goers create their artwork and asking each congregation to either contribute funds and/or art supplies to the cause.


Please send all craft supplies before June 2nd to the following address:

Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church
