This year marks the 50th year of the first Pride march. Fighting discrimination, inequality and injustice has always been at the heart of Pride. Prescott Indivisible pledges our unwavering support to the LGBTQIA* community.
LGBTQIA* is being used to intentionally include and raise awareness of Queer, Intersex and Asexual communities.
Prescott Indivisible’s mission commits to equal treatment, equal opportunity and equal rights.
The Human Rights Team and members of Prescott Indivisible honor the U. S. Supreme Court’s recent decision that ruled LGBTQ people cannot be fired for living and working openly as their authentic selves.
We are appalled by the administration’s 7/12/20 rule that removes nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people when it comes to health care and health insurance. It is to go in effect in mid-August. The rule is being challenged.
We support the continuation of the ACA that protects 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions without discrimination,
and the 23 millions Americans that could potentially lose their health coverage entirely.
History of Prescott Indivisible and Pride Month
In June of 2017 we did not celebrate Pride Month. Prescott Indivisible was totally involved in protecting Obamacare/ACA and registering people during the small window of opportunity that was available.

The Human Rights Team of Prescott Indivisible, under team leader Doug Kearney, continues to make the community of the greater Prescott area aware of issues that include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination. For more information about the team, contact Doug Kearney, firstname.lastname@example.org.
