Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest is looking for energetic volunteers to participate in the Palm Springs Pride Parade

Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest will be marching in the Palm Springs Pride Parade on Sunday Nov. 7 at 9:30 a.m. Residents are encouraged to join the organization for a morning of fun — be a part of Pride and show your support!

We’re looking for energetic volunteers to participate in the parade. Please note the parade route is about 1.5 miles long.

We anticipate our gathering spot will be in front of the SkyLark Hotel (1466 N Palm Canyon Dr.) between E. Stevens Rd and E Camino Monte Vista. Please head towards Vista Chino along Palm Canyon and look for folks wearing Planned Parenthood Pride t-shirts or look for the spot #63 painted on the road along Palm Canyon.
