Davis Pride 2019: is an all inclusive celebration event for members and supporters of the LGBTQIA community. Davis Pride is a two part large scale fundraising event: a 5 and 10k family fun run/walk followed by a FREE community festival.
Davis Pride is produced by Davis Phoenix Coalition, a non-profit organization with a mission to foster diversity, eliminate intolerance, prevent hate-motivated violence and support LGBTQ youth. The coalition was founded in the aftermath of a violent 2013 anti-gay attack on “Mikey” Partida, a 32-year-old long-distance runner and Davis resident. Proceeds from Davis Pride will support the Coalition’s year-round work, which includes anti-bullying campaigns, workshops and outreach with area police departments, churches and schools.
