Due to the COVID-19 situation, North Idaho PRIDE Alliance has decided to go VIRTUAL for the 2020 6th Annual PRIDE in the PARK event. Below you will find Community Partner Spotlight videos from organizations that would normally support the event with a table in the Park. Check out the virtual greeting and message from these vendors and take a moment to check out their virtual 'booth'.
CDA4Pride Campaign programming can be found here as well, including our Pride Concert Series, virtual discussions, podcasts, and more! This page will be updated all throughout June for more content to enjoy year-round.
