Dear Allies,

We are fast approaching PrideFest 2019!

Safe Zone of SIUe, sponsored by the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Students Affairs, will be hosting a booth at PrideFest 2019 to support the community and to tell visitors great things about our University. We are looking for volunteers to staff our booth and help us give away spin-the-wheel prizes. This is a fun time and the energy at the festival is exciting and positive. We also invite you to represent our University community by walking with us during the Parade on Sunday, June 30th from 12:00-2:00 PM. With the help of our campus community, we plan to staff a float in the parade this year. Visit the event website for festival information at

We need volunteers in our festival booth for increments as little as one hour of your time on Saturday, June 29th and Sunday, June 30th. Use the links below to sign up as a volunteer in the booth and/or to participate in the parade.  If you have any questions, contact Shelley Price-Williams at or Mary Sue Love at Feel free to share this email with your students and colleagues.
