Volunteer at our SF Pride booth!

We wantYOU to be part of our SF Pride booth fun and outreach! APIQWTC will be sharing a street fair booth on Sunday, June 29, with API Equality Northern California (thanks APIENC!) and we are looking for a few good volunteers to be at our booth for 1 or 2 hour shifts. Why volunteer? It makes for a very rewarding Pride experience, gives you the chance to meet wonderful folks (other volunteers, including the awesome summer interns of APIQWTC and APIENC, as well as the public), and you get a front row seat to all the goings on by the API Stage at SF Pride in the Civic Center area. This year our booth outreach will focus on the Dragon Fruit Project and gathering booth visitors’ perspectives about what queer API history means to them.  Be more than just a Pride spectator, devote a bit of your time at SF Pride to this fun and very meaningful project! If interested, email *protected email* and we will get back to you! HAPPY...
