AARP invites DC residents to join the fun of D.C. Capital Pride on Saturday and Sunday, June 8- 9, 2013.   Displaying an AARP banner reading, “Celebrating Pride for All Generations,” the AARP team will build upon AARP’s inclusive brand in this diverse community through participation in both the Pride Parade on Saturday, June 8th, and the Pride Festival on Sunday, June 9th.
Volunteer to walk in the parade  beginning at 4:30 p.m. or help out at the AARP exhibit booth at the festival beginning at noon, and you will receive a free AARP Pride t-shirt!  To volunteer for the parade or the festival, send an email to jwjordan@aarp.org by Friday, May 31st.

The parade brings over 250,000 visitors to Pennsylvania Avenue for a day of fun, friends, supportive organizations, information, education, and live performances. The DC Pride festival is said to be the fourth largest  in the nation.  Volunteering at the festival is one way to expand your knowledge of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) AARP members and households.  The festival is also a place where AARP volunteers and staff share printed AARP fact sheets on local and national campaigns and issues of importance to people age 50+ .  Come prepared to share your personal testimonial about the impact of local and national policies on you as a DC resident and help put a human face on AARP issues.
