CAPI Board announces the establishment of a relief fund to help support it’s member organizations
On Saturday 27 June, Pride organisations from across the world will celebrate Global Pride 2020. With musical and artistic performances, speeches from activists and campaigners, and addresses by public figures, we will stream 24 hours of content that reflects and celebrates the beautiful diversity of LGBTI+ people everywhere.
Global Pride will be live-streamed and you can watch anywhere with a computer or mobile device and an internet connection. We’ll announce in early June the platform on which Global Pride will be streamed. Sign up to the event on Facebook to make sure you get all our updates.
As members of the Consolidated Association of Prides, Inc. (CAPI), we are also members of the United States Association of Prides (USAP) and we are sharing the following update, from USAP, on how we can help each other. We are united in our movement and we are united in our priority of ensuring the health and well-being of each other, those dear to us and of our attendees as we deal with COVID-19.
We are here to support you and we encourage all CAPI members to support one another in the weeks and possibly months ahead and as this global outbreak recedes.
