In 2023, Niagara Pride launched the #WNYPrideNetworkForSocialGood campaign.  In the past, Niagara Pride has organized and participated in a number of food drives, clothing drives, backpack drives, etc.  Knowing that there is strength in numbers, Niagara Pride designed a campaign to encourage LGBTQ+ individuals in WNY as well as LGBTQ+ agencies to come together and work together on various social good projects to benefit the community. 

 

The #WNYPrideNetworkForSocialGood initiative will focus on ways LGBTQ+ organizations can unite to build bridges with other groups and agencies in order to improve WNY.
