Capital Pride is produced by the Capital Pride Alliance, a non-profit entity incorporated in the
District of Columbia with the sole purpose of supporting, planning, implementing and assessing the annual Capital Pride events and related activities throughout the year. The self perpetuating board, initially comprised of active members of the Capital Pride Planning Committee, has
expanded to include additional members, as well as a new Executive Director. The Alliance board is a working board comprised of community members who possess specific skills and expertise to ensure a seamless transition and start up of the organization.
