PRIDE Block Party
Join AVER, MVA, SPARTA, SVA, TAVA, and VA all month long as we celebrate Pride Month by giving back to our communities.
Join us all month long as we celebrate and give back!
Pride block parties are an integral part of LGBTQ pride celebrations across the country. Again this year, the pandemic has caused many pride parades, festivals, and block parties to be canceled for the safety of the community. Canceling these events does not mean that we can’t still celebrate our pride and make an impact in the community around us.
This Pride month, we welcome you to join a coalition of veteran organizations for a virtual Veteran Pride Block Party. This is a virtual event to celebrate pride and engage members in camaraderie, solidarity, and action in your local community and neighborhood by cleaning up your block and making a positive impact on those around you.
This coalition of organizations and volunteers is committed to leaving the world a better place than we found it.
How to Participate:
- Organize a trash cleanup
- Host a canned food drive
- Mentor LGBTQ+ youth
- Organize a collection for menstrual products
- Donate a Pride Flag
- Weed communal flower beds
- Mow your neighbor’s lawn
- Trim overgrown bushes
- Self care
