24 Apr VMAE Supports World Pride 2019
Pride Veterinary Medical Community (Pride VMC) is partnering with VMAE and all interested veterinary associations, veterinary organizations, and industry partners to gather up to 400 parade participants this coming June 30th for World Pride 2019 in New York City. The date corresponds with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.
Having the veterinary profession represented on the world stage is a unique and rare opportunity. Part of Pride VMC’s mission is to foster acceptance and inclusivity, and in that spirit it is providing the opportunity for individuals to march together and unite in pride for the LGBTQ+ Veterinary Medical Community.
VMAE is supporting World Pride 2019 as to underscore the importance of diversity and inclusion in the veterinary community. Your VMA can help drive awareness of World Price 2019 by using your communication channels to feature event information created by Pride VMC:
- An Eventbrite page to handle RSVPs to march. Tickets to march are free – but an RSVP is required.
- A Facebook Event
- A Facebook Group
If your organization wants to be recognized as a supporter of Veterinary World Pride, you can send your VMA’s logo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
