We have had some questions concerning Week of PRIDE, 2 questions most notably:
What if we have an event going on the week before OR the week after Week of PRIDE?
Answer: although Week of PRIDE was acknowledged by the Governor's office as May 24-30, 2015, if your PRIDE group already has pre planned events that will take place just before or just after Week of PRIDE, if your PRIDE group wishes to use these events to count toward Week of PRIDE - feel free to do so!
Does this have to be a big event?
No. This can be as simple as a community clean up/fix up. As this is the first year and it has been short notice we are not asking for large scale projects, that is unless you have them already planned or have pre planned events you wish to count. Not only that, don't forget to get youth involved in any way you can - such as a coloring contest, an essay of what they love about their community, youth community photo contest (these are examples suggested by PRIDE communities since last week). Just don't forget, if you have any youth featured in pictures that you wish to submit, please send a photo release form, which can be found on our Community Events Page
Do not forget to send pictures (to PRIDE@ksu.edu) and fill out your community Week of PRIDE report so we can collect your impact!
Thank you for all that you do for Kansas
