Mid-City CAN Holds First Pride Event

Pride event

On Saturday June 25th the Civic Engagement team hosted their first Queer, Trans, Intersex, People of the Global Majority (QTIPGM) Health, Pride and Resiliency event at Henwood Memorial Park in City Heights. The goal of the event is to improve the health disparities that the QTIPGM community encounter, as well as provide resources from Community Based Organizations to mitigate those disparities. Thank you to all our partners and guests who attended to make the event a success! 

Mid-City CAN was excited to partner with more than 10 community organizations including Planned Parenthood, Rainbow Spaces, SD Black LGBTQ+ Coalition, and many more. The event featured speakers, a yoga session led by JustBriFree Yoga & Wellness, a tie-dye station courtesy of Sew Loka, a flag making station, a performance by Amber St. James, and food & drinks. Council President Sean Elo-Rivera stopped by and congratulated Mid-City CAN for hosting a wonderful community event!
