American University Pride Alumni Alliance


The vision of AU Pride Alumni Alliance (AU Pride) is to connect and engage the LGBT and ally communities of American University Alumni through celebrating diversity and increasing visibility. Achieving these goals lies in the continued engagement of our Pride Alumni through active participation, volunteer opportunities, philanthropic commitment to American University, and raising awareness of the issues affecting the LGBT and ally communities at large.
