Our Mission Statement
Ohio River Valley Pride's mission is to advocate for LGBTQ+ individuals in our community, provide a support system for those individuals, and educate the public on key issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community. We strive to lower suicide rates through education and active prevention.
We also aim to eradicate discrimination against LGBTQ+ students by helping to establish GSTAs (gay-straight-trans alliances) in schools in our community and surrounding areas, along with providing the students and faculty involved with said groups the resources necessary to succeed.
We are dedicated to helping those struggling with addiction (which does occur at a higher rate within the LGBTQ+ community); not only in terms of prevention, but to help individuals struggling seek recovery and achieve and maintain sobriety.
Ohio River Valley Pride does, and will continue to, partner with organizations that share similar goals. We also firmly dedicate ourselves to bettering our neighborhoods through public service, most often in the form of volunteering time and resources.
