about PACE

In the spring of 2017, a small group of Pierre/Fort Pierre community members met to plan Pierre's first-ever Pride Parade. What started out as a planning meeting for one event ended with the decision to do more than a parade. 

After more meetings, planning, the help of equality groups in the state of South Dakota, and the support of local community members the Pierre Area Center for Equality (PACE) was founded in June of 2018. 

The Pierre Area Center for Equality strives to advocate, connect, educate, and empower LGBTQ+ persons, including their friends and family, to bring about a more safe and inclusive environment in the Pierre area and surrounding communities.

Special thank you to everyone who bought our special SoDak Pride shirts on Bonfire. The money raised from the campaign will go towards holding Pierre's first Pride festival in July 2018.

Hope to see you there!
