Upcoming Events

Ricky’s Pride hosts events to celebrate and support our partner organizations, endorsed candidates, and the causes that we seek to advance. Our events are a great opportunity for the community to gather together while working toward our goals of a more equitable society.


LGBT Cultural Competency Training

January 22 1-2:30 on ZOOM

Gaining cultural competence is a lifelong process of increasing self-awareness, developing social skills and behaviors around diversity, and gaining the ability to advocate for others. It goes beyond tolerance, which implies that one is simply willing to overlook differences. Instead, it includes recognizing and respecting diversity through our words and actions in all contexts.

Turn your awareness into action and become a leader of change by attending this important training. Sponsored by our friends at Rudolph Clarke, and presented on Zoom virtually, this FREE training (donations are appreciated)  is open to all Democratic party leaders, elects, campaign staff, volunteers, and committee folk throughout PA. 

Presented by Todd Snovel, this presentation will focus on the importance of awareness, understanding, and respect for LGBTQ+ individuals living in our communities. It will include understanding for candidates, elected officials, campaign staff, area leaders, municipal chairs, democratic committee people, and volunteers on identity and intersectionality, considering cultural conditioning, and thinking about moving from knowledge to action to become active allies to all LGBTQ+ constituents.

Here is a brief outline:

1. Introductions and purpose for our conversations 

2. Overview on LGBTQ identities and key terms 

3. Intersections of identity 

4. Understanding societal oppression of LGBTQ+ identities (homophobia, heterosexism, heteronormativity) 

5. Use of language and resources 

6. Intentional steps that political leaders can consider integrating 

7. Making mistakes (understanding microaggressions) 

8. Review of allyship checklist
