Naper Pride has joined the United States Association of Prides (USAP) and InterPride organizations.
The USAP was formed with the primary purpose to engage in activities to promote public education and awareness of the personal rights and civil liberties of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and gender-nonconforming individuals. USAP has a United States geographic focus.
InterPride is focused on human rights issues at an international level. Seventy jurisdictions in the world criminalize private, consensual, same-sex sexual activity. InterPride’s Strategic Plan 2022-2025 includes an enhanced focus on working collaboratively with partners to grow the Pride movement as a means of achieving visibility and social change.
“We also aim to build our international profile to better advocate for the rights of our communities, and Naper Pride is grateful to be included in this important work,” the organization said in their announcement.
