Atlanta Pride: October 13-15, 2023

We hope you'll join us for Atlanta Pride in October. Every year, SOJOURN coordinates the Jewish community’s presence in the parade and at the Pride Festival in Piedmont Park. Come and connect with 40+ Jewish groups from all across Metro Atlanta as we march to show Jewish and LGBTQ+ pride! 

This year, Atlanta Pride will take place Friday October 13 - Sunday October 15. There will be opportunities to participate with SOJOURN throughout the weekend, including:

  • Atlanta-wide Pride Shabbat in Piedmont Park on October 13. Details coming soon!
  • SOJOURN's booth at the Pride Festival on Saturday, October 14 and Sunday, October 15. We need volunteers to staff the booth, inform people of area programs, give out swag, invite people to take photos, and create overall camaraderie! Sign up for a volunteer shift here!
  • March in the parade on Sunday, October 15 with the Jewish community! Sign your synagogue or organization up to join us here. 

You(th) Belong...Outside at CompassionCon!

CompassionCon 2023 will be a Fall event centering on the viral nature of compassion when our communities prioritize our common humanity and interdependence. This interactive festival-like conference will uplift the positive impact compassion has on our social and community contexts of health.

CompassionCon will develop awareness, education, and action around compassion for self, others, and the earth. The goal is to help people realize that we must care for each other and build communities around a culture of care that supports everyone’s well-being.

CompassionCon is an opportunity to celebrate our interconnectedness while we build healthier communities together. The festival will include music and art, wellness activities, food trucks, mobile health care units with blood pressure testing, HIV testing, a blood drive, covid vaccines, as well as the distribution of diapers, and hygiene products.

CompassionCon will take place on September 30, 2023 at Legacy Park, 500 S. Columbia Drive, Decatur, GA 30030.

Registration will open soon for You(th) Belong Outside!
