To RSVP, send an email to sredmond@stonewallcitizens.org, Subject: 'Pride 2020 Shift Request'
You have a friend that is not an SCP volunteer but wants to get involved, please welcome them to:
1)Walk in the parade with SCP
2)Volunteer for a Festival Emergency Exit Team shift while you do an SCP Festival Recruitment Booth shift
3)Volunteer together at a Festival Emergency Exit Team shift
You both will receive the same community partner benefits and come and go through Pride Village all weekend (no main gate lines!)
Do you have a group at work or another organization that would like to help our Festival Emergency Exit Team out? Send their contact information to sredmond@stonewallcitizens.org, Subject: 'Pride 2020 Large Group Request'. As a group, they will also receive all the benefits at San Diego Pride under our community partnership agreement.
Uniforms for all shifts will be a patrol t-shirt (short or long sleeve) and hat.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We will need a 100% response rate from all Patrol Volunteers.
Thank you for what you do to make SCP a community leader in public safety.
