Pride Lafayette values mutual respect and civility among volunteers and its leaders. We recognize that not everyone can be friends, but we ask people to make a conscientious effort to keep personal differences from interfering with the organization. We believe this principle has been crucial for creating the safe, welcoming, and productive environment we now enjoy.
