Virtual Pride Block Party!

Student Veterans of America (SVA), Minority Veterans of America (MVA), American Veterans for Equal Rights (AVER), Transgender American Veterans Association (TAVA), and SPARTA are coming together to host a virtual Pride block party for the entire month of June!

Pride block parties are an integral part of LGBTQ pride celebrations across the country. Again this year, the pandemic has caused many pride parades, festivals, and block parties to be canceled for the safety of the community. Canceling these events does not mean that we can’t still celebrate our pride and make an impact in the community around us. 

This Pride month, we welcome you to join a coalition of veteran organizations for a virtual Veteran Pride Block Party. This is a virtual event to celebrate pride and engage members in camaraderie, solidarity, and action in your local community and neighborhood by cleaning up your block and making a positive impact on those around you. 

Join this coalition of organizations and volunteers in leaving the world a better place than we all found it.

How to participate:

Organize a trash cleanup

Host a canned food drive
