The Growing Together Initiative Fund will be at Pride in the Plaza on July 9th
Sun, Jul 9th
The Growing Together Initiative (GTI), will be once again particiapting in Pride in the Plaza on Sunday, July 9th from noon to 5:00pm in SLO Mission Plaza. Join us at this fun community event with the following mission:
- CELEBRATE – our lives on the Central Coast and our accomplishments as a community;
- EDUCATE – the public about our culture, our place in society, and our issues of concern; and
- DEMONSTRATE – our diversity, our normalcy, our numbers, and how proud we are to be who we are.
The GTI Advisory Committee will have a booth in which we encourage community members to paint a flower pot and plant a succulent with the intenet of "growing together."
GTI provides grants to local LGBTQ organizations focusing on the principles of social justice, a civil society and safety of our youth. Local grants amounting to more than $130,000 have been allocated since 2002. An endowment fund of more than $300,000 has also been established to support local efforts focused on community inclusiveness now and in perpetuity.
