UUCV and UCH are looking for a few good men and women to serve as Silent Witness Peacekeepers for the July 30th Pride Festival along Harrisburg’s Riverfront Park.
Silent Witness Peacekeepers and their very visible rainbow umbrellas provide a non-confrontational buffer between the LGBT community and those who protest at LGBT events such as Pridefest. Where there are those who publicly promote hate, Peacekeepers are there to help provide a loving, supportive front opposing them.
Silent Witness volunteers will receive training in non-confrontation techniques specially designed for the work they do. If interested, please sign up at the Social Justice table in the Social hall by July 3rd.
