A group of concerned volunteers of San Diego LGBT Pride have posted an online petition calling for the immediate resignation of the three remaining board members of the nonprofit organization. The petition also calls for the reinstatement of three staff members who left the organization due to the recent revelation of the Board Chair receiving a $5,000 stipend for service.
The creators of the petition represent members of San Diego Pride's volunteer force and the Ambassadors of San Diego Pride. The group plans to print and deliver the petition to the current Board of Directors of San Diego Pride at the Community Town Hall meeting planned for this weekend.
The town hall meeting is being organized by community leaders and former San Diego Pride Board members, to seek community input on the future of the organization. The event will be held on Sunday, January 10 at 6 p.m. at the San Diego LGBT Community Center, located at 3909 Centre Street in Hillcrest.
