Healing & Safer Communities

In June of 2020, San Diego Pride released a plan to chart a course forward to better address the public safety needs of our LGBTQ community and to hold law enforcement agencies accountable for bias in policing that disproportionately harms our transgender, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color community members. Our Path to Healing & Safer Communities plan intentionally centers Black LGBTQ San Diegans. We honor the progress that has been made and the work we have yet to do.

Pillars of Justice

Pride’s Pillars of Justice build on our mission, vision, and values to guide our work in policy, advocacy, and community organizing. These issue areas are core to the achievement of LGBTQ+ equality locally, nationally, and globally. While our focus areas and specific policies may shift often based on community needs, these pillars of justice build the stable foundation of our education and advocacy work.
