Who we are:
Capital Pride Edmonton is a 2SLGBTQ+ organization that was founded to learn our past, grow our present, and forge our future. We seek to bring an inclusive perspective of Pride that celebrates equity, diversity, holds space for the Two-Spirit, QTBIPOC community, and emboldens our spirit to create a Pride that is for the community, by the community.
What we are doing:
As the world starts to come back together, we are doing the same. We seek to reignite Pride by reaching out to our community and ensure all voices are heard on what Pride means to them by building a foundation to bring Pride 2023 to Edmonton.
2) That the society re-structures it’s board and staff hiring practices to have more representation from people of colour and trans folks. (consider their capacity, discuss giving honorariums through this).
5) Actively anti-discriminatory (anti-racist, decolonizing, anti-oppressive)
2S & reconciliation.
Our intention is to actively uplift the voices of marginalized community members who are impacted by oppression in our community. We will be hiring contractors and providing honorariums for the community in effort to uplift these individuals, and providing anti-racist and anti-discriminitory training to all involved with our organization.
