OUR EYES, EARS, AND BOOTS ARE ON THE GROUND
Our candidates want to meet with and hear from YOU. Please reach out if you would like to meet your SC house nominee. If you’d like information about events with our state and federal candidates, or if you are interested in volunteering with county organizations. We are going to have a fantastic slate of candidates in November, but they will need YOUR help to get across the finish line.

|CCDP @2022 Charleston Pride Parade! |
That’s right! Charleston Pride Parade is back for 2022! CCDP is proud to support the LGBTQ+ community and join in on the festivities! We will have a decorated trailer, hand out candy, stickers, and flyers, and let our Pride flags fly. We will gather at 8am at Wragg Mall by the Visitors Center, and the parade starts at 9.
This year the parade route is shorter and will just be down King St. from Ann St. to Market St. There will be limited seating for those that need it on the trailer, but otherwise, all participants will be walking as group along the route.
All participants will receive a free t-shirt. However, we are asking for a donation of $20 per shirt to cover our costs. Click here to donate towards shirts, decorating supplies, and giveaways.

Please consider donating the following items so we can continue to support this amazing project!
