Can SDNYC register 500 voters during Pride?
We've gotten voter registration forms in the hands of about 100 people thus far, but we have more to go to meet our goal to register 500 voters during PRIDE!
BROOKLYN PRIDE with SDNYC & LID

Pride is better with friends! So we're teaming up with Lambda Independent Democrats of Brooklyn this Saturday!
March and celebrate Brooklyn Pride with SDNYC & LID on June 8th!

It's a quick march, and we'll be working the crowd making sure everyone attending is registered to vote! Afterwards, visit the many LGBTQ-friendly establishments in the neighborhood! It's a great festive evening and, with a few voter registration forms in your pocket, a pure opportunity!
