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
Attn: Capital Pride Coordinator, C. Fuller
Please send all monetary donations to the following address:
Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia
Attn: Capital Pride Coordinator, J. McAtee
There is no need to sign-up for the parade as all are welcomed. However, if you already know you are marching please email the number of people attending to email@example.com.
To volunteer with crafts at the festival Sunday, June 10th sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/
Together with the Capital Pride Organization, let us as a supporting community stand tall, look forward, take a deep breath, and become who we are meant to be – confident, supportive, resilient, compassionate, and glorious!
Any questions can be directed to Jenny McAtee (240) 595-2680 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
